A priest who has just been accused of abusing a New York child also spent time in Cincinnati, according to church documents.

Fr. Carleton Parker Jones, a Dominican cleric, was sued days ago in Manhattan for reportedly sexually assaulting an eight-year-old boy while he was preparing for his first confession and first communion with Jones. 

An on-line parish document says that he is moving to Cincinnati Archdiocese. 

For the safety of children we believe it is the moral and civic duty of Cincinnati Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr to publicly disclose that Jones has been accused of child sex abuse – and disclose any information he has about Fr. Jones, especially other assignments in Ohio that he may have had. Finally, church officials in both Ohio and New York should reveal Fr. Jones' whereabouts and insist that he live in a secure, remote, independently-run facility or treatment center until this troubling case is resolved.
