ALBANY, N.Y. — A local priest has been permanently removed from the priesthood because of sex abuse allegations.

The Albany Catholic Diocese says it has reason to believe Reverend Gary Mercure, 60, sexually abused a minor more than 20 years ago. Bishop Howard Hubbard says the allegations stem from Mercure's time as a priest at St. Theresa of Avila in Albany.
