Testimony Continues in Stone Sexual Abuse Trial

May 26, 2016

Former EWTN Television host accused of sexually abusing a child under the age of 12

Testimony continued Thursday in the trial of a former Catholic priest accused of sexually abusing a minor.

This afternoon, a juvenile whom we are not identifying testified that David Stone inappropriately touched him on the upper thigh and near the groin.

This comes after testimony earlier this week from a boy whom we also aren't identifying said that Stone inappropriately touched him on his backside when he was 3 years old. That particular alleged incident took place back in 2011.

Stone was once the host of "Life on the Rock," which aired on Irondale-based Catholic television network EWTN. He was fired from the network for having a relationship with a woman.

The judge has asked both sides not to speak publicly about the case. The trial is expected to last into next week.
