Ronald Paquin.” And this story by the Globe was revealing that Paquin’s name had appeared in documents related to another priest, the Rev. John J. Geoghan, who was at the time being tried for the sexual assault of a minor. The article stated that Paquin, too, had left a trail of victims over a 25 year period in Methuen and Haverhill, Massachusetts. A black-and-white picture of him was included with the article.
