Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Esteban Rodriguez:

Fr. Esteban Rodriguez was from Puerto Rico and ordained a priest of the Carmelite Fathers and Brothers. According to media reports, in 2001, he and three other priests were named in a lawsuit alleging child sexual abuse. The priests were alleged to have paid a 16-year-old boy for sex between January 1996 and August 1998 at St. Simon Stock in the Bronx, New York.
