Ex-Stepinac priest moved around to Indiana, New York, Maryland, Nebraska and Minnesota over 40 years

A former student at Archbishop Stepinac High School accused a priest there of sexually abusing him in the late 1960s, the latest case of hundreds filed in New York under the state’s new law.

Donald Brundage of Westchester County accused John Vincent, a priest who worked for the Archdiocese and the school from 1966 to 1972, in a new lawsuit.

In a Manhattan court filing on Monday, Brundage claimed that when he was 15 or 16 years old, Vincent sat on his lap, touched him and made “sexual contact” in front of other students, according to the suit.
