Former Eagle resident’s funds being dispersed in Haiti abuse case

NEW HAVEN — Nearly $49,000 seized from a former Colorado and Connecticut resident is being sent to 16 young men he sexually abused at a school for street children he founded in Haiti.

The Connecticut Post reports that U.S. District Judge Janet Bond Arterton in New Haven has begun dispensing the money seized from the bank and retirement accounts of Douglas Perlitz, who was sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison in December for the assaults.

Perlitz, a former resident of Eagle, Colo., and Fairfield County, Conn., admitted he engaged in illicit sexual conduct with boys who attended the Project Pierre Toussaint School in Cap-Haitien.

Federal officials have opened bank accounts with $1,000 for the 16 victims and will be adding $2,000 more to those accounts over the next 14 months.
