Notes on the offender

John Albino is one of four priests who reportedly paid a 16-year-old boy for sexual favors and verbally attacked him, after using alcohol and underage gay porn to assist in seducing the teenager. The teen was reportedly sexually violated, touched in an unwanted sexual manner, forced to watch group masturbation, and sexually fondled. The boy's family filed a lawsuit in 2000 for unspecified damages from the archdiocese, which was settled by 2002. After the lawsuit, Albino was sent to a treatment facility and later removed from the ministry.
