In 2006, a man reported to the Archdiocese that he was sexually abused by Eric Price and Deacon Thomas Kuhl in the mid-1990s from the age of 14 to 15 or 16. The victim attended Our Lady of Pompei and was a student at Towson Catholic High School, where Kuhl was his religion teacher, choir director and was involved in confirmation classes and other activities. The victim was invited to Kuhl’s house for dinner, where Eric Price was also present. After dinner, Kuhl left the victim alone with Price, and they went to a bedroom to look at pornography. Kuhl then entered the room and orally raped the victim, who was scared. The abuse continued on a regular basis at Kuhl’s house for approximately a year, where Kuhl and Price had anal and oral sex with each other and the victim. The victim believed there may have been other victims.

The Archdiocese questioned Kuhl, who denied the abuse and denied knowing where Price lived, despite having the same address. The Archdiocese removed both Kuhl and Price from their roles and imposed a Precept on Kuhl that prohibited him from having any contact with a minor, entering onto Archdiocesan property, performing any clerical duties, and/or presenting as a cleric. The Archdiocese made a mandated report to law enforcement, published an official statement, sent letters to parishioners and parents, and held public meetings. The abuse was covered by local media.

In 2009, the Archdiocese settled with the victim for $28,000. Neither Price nor Kuhl has been listed as credibly accused by the Archdiocese.
