"According to an April 19 story in the Saratogian newspaper, Huntress was accused of assault by a man, now 39, who claimed he was violated multiple times during the priest's six-year tenure in New York ...

"Sometime in the early '80s, Huntress allegedly returned to New Hampshire and sexually assaulted a child under the age of 13.

"In 1985, he arrived back in Massachusetts, where he presided over St. Martin's Church in New Bedford, then moved back to England in 1991 and retired following a reported 1994 assault.

"Over the last 16 years, he served in occasional, unofficial capacities at All Saints Church in Dorchester, Church of the Advent in Boston and, most recently, at St. Michael's Church in Marblehead.

"When informed of the potential sexual assault allegations directed toward Huntress, Rev. Timothy Rich, Canon of the Ordinary for the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire, said he and Bishop Gene Robinson took immediate action."
