Former Winchester Priest Cleared of Sexual Abuse Charges

Rev. Victor LaVoie of St. Eulalia Church was cleared of charges that he sexually abused a child.

According to My Fox Boston, the Roman Catholic Archdioces of Boston cleared Rev. Victor LaVoie of St. Eulalia's Church in Winchester of charges that he sexually abused a child.

Last month, the Archdioceses announced that a church court found the allegations unfounded, according to Fox.

LaVoie was ordained in 1971, and was in Winchester for eight years before the allegations arose in 2002. According to a Boston Globe article, he was suspended immediately and told to vacate the Winchester rectory.

''For one unsubstantiated, uninvestigated, unproven allegation, I am sent off to feel like a leper, an outcast, one to be avoided," LaVoie told the Globe at the time.
