Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Father John Albino:

Fr. John C. Albino was accused in a 2001 lawsuit, along with three Carmelite priests, of sexually abusing a 16-year-old boy during 1996-1998 at St. Simon Stock parish in the Bronx. The boy was working as a secretary at the parish.

The priests allegedly gave the boy money in exchange for sexual favors, and he witnessed them engaging in group masturbation. They also were said to have threatened to harm the boy if he told authorities. The lawsuit was filed in 2002, which was against the Carmelite Order and St. Simon Stock, which resulted in a settlement. Albino reportedly was sent to treatment and removed from ministry that year.

Albino was named on the Archdiocese of New York’s 2019 List of Archdiocesan Clergy Credibly Accused of Sexual Abuse of a Minor or the Subject of Eligible IRCP Compensation Claims.

Albino’s whereabouts and whether he has had access to children from 2002 to the present are unknown.
