BINGHAMTON, NY (WSKG) — A priest who served at Ithaca College and Cornell University has been accused of sexual abuse of a minor. That’s according to the Ithaca Journal.
Reverend Carsten Martensen has served in campus ministry at both schools since 2007.
The abuse allegedly occurred in the 1970’s. Martensen has stepped down from all current assignments and public ministry until an investigation by the USA Northeast Province of Jesuits wraps up.
He was not on a list of Jesuit priests with credible accusations released by that group in January.
Full disclosure: Cornell University is a WSKG Underwriter.
