ALABAMA By Greg Garrison | [email protected] Jefferson County jury today found a former EWTN priest and TV personality not guilty of child sexual abuse.
David Stone, 55, hosted a talk show for youth from 2001-2007 on EWTN.
While working at EWTN he fathered a child with an EWTN employee, Christina Presnell. Stone had been charged with sexually abusing his son.
"I think the jury reached the correct decision," said Stone's attorney, Chip Bradford.
"Hopefully he can move ahead with his life and in his relationship with his son." Stone has not had visitation with his son for several years, Bradford said.
He is now eligible for supervised visitation, based on a previous order in Jefferson County Family Court, Bradford said.
