(Waterbury-AP)- A Wolcott man is the latest person to file a sex abuse lawsuit against the Reverend Stephen Foley, a former state police and fire chaplain.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday by a man identified only as Anthony Doe, is the eighth filed in the past year against Foley.

The man claims that Foley molested him at a private home in Fairfield County in 1976.

At the time, Foley was a priest at Christ the King Church in Bloomfield. The church and the Hartford Archdiocese are also name in the lawsuit.

In recent weeks, Foley has denied that he ever sexually abused anyone.

Foley is still a priest, but he has been removed from all public service. He lives at St. Thomas More Seminary in Bloomfield.
