Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Clark White:

In July of 2002, Father Clark White and three other priests were removed from their assignments as a result of a zero tolerance policy from Dallas Bishops’ conference. Father White was working at St. Patrick’s Church in Brasher Falls at the time. 

The Diocese of Ogdensburg released a statement saying that all four priests had substantiated sexual abuse allegations against them. Furthermore, all four of the priests had also been through some form of therapy in the past for their “problems.”

No other information has been released about the number of alleged victims or the time-frame of the alleged abuse. Clark White appears on the updated list of credibly accused priests by the Ogdensburg diocese as of November 13th, 2018.
