Ottawa priest charged

Share Button

Father Stephen Amesse, a priest with the Archdiocese of Ottawa, Ontario, has been charged. Charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual interference.  Charges date to 2008 – relate to allegations of sex abuse of a 14-year-old boy .

Police have been investigating since February of this year.

Amesse, a late vocation to the priesthood,  has been mentioned on Sylvia’s Site in the past, not as a molester but primarily because of his  involvement as a layman in compiling the CCCB guidelines on sex abuse (From Pain to Hope).

More to come.

I commend the complainant for speaking up and going to police.  He is young.  Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

I encourage those with further information or allegations to contact police.

Enough for now,
