Diocese: Diocese of Ogdensburg
Named publicly in Canada 7/30/08 as accused. On 7/31/08 the Albany diocese acknowledged, in response to pressure from SNAP, that it had removed Stone from ministry in 1981 after he pled guilty to sodomizing two teenage brothers in Colonie, NY. He had worked in the Albany diocese for about 11 years. Prior to Albany, Stone worked in the Diocese of Ogdensburg, where he was also accused. After his 1981 conviction, and while on probation, Bishop LaRocque of Alexandria-Cornwall, Ontario, Canada hired Stone. LaRocque had full knowledge of Stone’s history of abuse. After new allegations in 1985, Larocque terminated him. Stone died 11/06.
