Chappaqua priest Francis Stinner was accused of molesting over 100 times a then 11-year-old altar boy in Port Jervis.The now adult alleged victim, named Joseph, said that at the priest's residence and in other religious settings, Stinner would rub the boy's genitals in bed and watch him shower, fondle him during math tutoring, and exchange clothes.
...
"You have ruined my name," said Stinner, denying the allegations.After months of no progress, Joseph's parents -- both religious teachers -- contacted the archdiocese and were told that Stinner had been receiving psychological treatment.In 1995, Joseph learned that Stinner was a pastor in Bronxville, Westchester, and had won an award for running a youth program.
...
After O'Connor said, "It's your word against Father Stinner's.What am I supposed to do?", Joseph gave him letters from 10 other former altar boys who said they had been abused by Stinner.
...
But when it asked him to release the church and Stinner from liability, waive charges, and be silent to media, Joseph asked for $300,000, and accepted $35,000.
...
That's how he started abusing me." Stinner was hired by the Chappaqua church despite his well-known reputation as a child molester, and church members said they were stunned when Stinner oversaw a recent children's mass. "You'd think they'd put the best interests of families first," said one parishioner after attending Palm Sunday services.

Francis Stinner, a former pastor of St. Joseph's Church in Bronxville, Westchester County.Despite insisting on his innocence, he left the parish in 1997 after several men accused him of abusing them decades before in Orange County.At the time, the archdiocese acknowledged paying for therapy, college and a new car for Stinner's main accuser.Stinner continued to celebrate Mass at several parishes until the archdiocese told him to stop in 2002.
These priests may have agreed to leave the priesthood or could have been defrocked against their will, said Monsignor Ronny Jenkins of Catholic University, an adviser to the U.S. Bishops Conference on sex-abuse cases.
