BRIDGEPORT — A professional opera singer has been accused in a lawsuit of sexually assaulting an 8-year-old boy in his former Greenwich home in the 1970s.

In the lawsuit filed in Superior Court here Monday, the plaintiff, who is now 45 and lives in Florida, claims Leonard Jay Gould sexually assaulted him numerous times over a three-year period when he lived across the street from Gould on Mackenzie Glen.

“This is one of the worst cases of sexual abuse I’ve ever seen,” said the plaintiff’s lawyer, Cindy Robinson, who represented more than a dozen people who received settlements from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgeport for allegation of sexual abuse against priests.

Gould, 59, who now lives in the Bronx, N.Y., could not be reached for comment. He has performed both at Carnegie and Avery Fisher halls.

Currently a singer with the Amore Opera Company in New York City, he was convicted in 1996 of sodomizing a 12-year-old boy in his former Tarrytown, N.Y., home and is listed on the New York sex offender registry.

The lawsuit states that as a result of the years of sexual abuse the plaintiff suffered physical and emotional injuries that resulted in his undergoing medical care.
