Funeral held for former priest convicted in sex scandal

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A former priest was laid to rest this week in Charleston. The funeral was held Wednesday at St. Joseph Catholic Church. Rev. Eugene Condon was 85.

According to a release from the Diocese of Charleston, Condon was ordained in 1956 and retired 40 years later.

Condon was charged in 1996 with sexual molestation, and allegations surfaced again in 2006. In 1999, Condon was convicted of sex crimes, but another alleged victim came forward accusing Condon of inappropriate acts in the 1970s when the child was 13 years old.

'The Diocese of Charleston asks everyone to continue praying for all victims of child sexual abuse," the release states.
