Buddhist monk charged with raping girl, 15 - But took a vow of silence for 15 yrs

More than a decade after he allegedly raped and impregnated a 15-year-old girl at a Southwest Side temple, a Buddhist monk was charged with the crime.

Camnong Boa-Ubol, 61, was charged with afternoon with one count aggravated criminal sexual assault for allegedly sexually abusing and impregnating a teenage girl at the Wat Dhammaram temple in unincorporated Stickney Township, according to Cook County State’s Attorney spokesman Andy Conklin.

Boa-Ubol arrived in Chicago late Wednesday, two months after he was arrested in Anchorage, Alaska, on a warrant for the aggravated criminal sexual assault of the teen while he lived at the Wat Dhammaram temple in Stickney Township.

Boa-Ubol has not been formally charged, but supporters of the victim said her decision to pursue charges after so many years was agonizing.

The victim sued Boa-Ubol in 2010, but declined to pursue criminal charges against him out of fear that her daughter’s identity would be made public during court proceedings. The following year, her story was featured in a July 2011 Tribune investigation of alleged sexual assaults and Buddhist temples.

Following the story, members of Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests, or SNAP, contacted the woman and encouraged her to press charges against her alleged abuser, but SNAP president Barbara Blaine said it took months to convince her to meet with sheriff’s police investigators.

“She didn’t want her daughter to be ostracized or teased,” Blaine said.

In October, the woman met with detectives from the sheriff’s department, but it was another seven months before they were able to track him down, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart said in a written statement.

Wasn't SNAP involved in some underhanded methods like hypnotizing so-called victims so they can free their repressed memories.
