Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Carl Stone:
Father Carl Stone was ordained as a Montfortian priest in Ottawa’s Notre Dame Cathedral in 1942. He served in multiple parishes throughout his career, including the Diocese of Ogdensburg. According to media reports, in 1981, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany removed him from ministry after he pleaded guilty to sodomy charges stemming from an incident involving sex with two teenage brothers in Colonie. He was placed on probation for five years.
While on probation, Father Stone moved to the Cornwall area in Canada. In 1985, he was fired after his new job had learned of new accusations against the priest involving inviting young men into his room at St. Joseph’s Villa. Eugene LaRocque, a former Catholic Bishop in Canada, reportedly knew about Father Stone’s past child sexual abuse when he hired him after the arrest
Father Stone died in 2006.
