New Hampshire bishop faces sex abuse allegations from his time as priest in Deer Park
A Catholic bishop is accused of sexually abusing a boy while serving as a priest on Long Island.
Bishop Peter Anthony Libasci of Manchester New Hampshire Catholic Diocese is facing sexual abuse claims from nearly 40 years ago.
The lawsuit claims it happened at a Catholic school and church in Deer Park where Libasci served as a priest.
The abuse allegedly happened in 1983 and 1984 when the boy was around 12.
Diocese officials say the bishop’s status is currently unchanged.
