Former R.I. clergyman pleads guilty to child-porn charge, now listed as ‘credibly accused’ in Mass.

From Rhode Island-

Gregory Lisby, an Episcopal priest who served at churches in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, pleaded guilty Friday to possessing child pornography, and has separately been “credibly” accused of abusing a teenager, the Diocese of Western Massachusetts alleged.

In a letter sent to congregants Friday, Western Massachusetts Bishop Douglas J. Fisher revealed that, since Lisby was charged last September, the diocese has found “devastating credible evidence” that Lisby sexually abused a teenager “after he was ordained as a priest in 2007.”

A diocese spokeswoman provided the letter but said she could not comment further, citing concerns about the victim’s privacy. She declined to say whether police had been notified or were investigating.
