A former Rye priest was accused of sexually molesting an altar boy in the 1970s in a lawsuit filed Thursday under New York’s Child Victims Act.
William T. White is accused of sexually abusing the victim at the Church of the Resurrection in Rye multiple times between 1972 and 1973, when the boy was 11 and 12 years old, according to the suit.
These are the latest allegations against White, who has faced accusations that he sexually abused children while an administrator at Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains and Holy Cross in Manhattan.
White also worked locally at Holy Family in New Rochelle for two years in the 1980s and as principal of Cardinal Spellman High School in the Bronx, according to priest abuse records and previous reports. White, now 86, was defrocked in 2002 while working in Florida. He is believed to still live in West Palm Beach.
