An Episcopal priest has been suspended from a Pennsylvania church after being accused this week of molesting three boys at an elite Rhode Island boarding school more than 40 years ago.

Dozens of students allege they were molested or raped at St. George's School in Middletown in the 1970s and '80s. A lawyer for three former students named the Rev. Howard White on Tuesday as being among the six perpetrators the school identified after an internal investigation.

White is a retired priest who has been filling in at St. James Episcopal Church in Bedford, about 100 miles east of Pittsburgh.

Episcopal officials say he would be subjected to the church's disciplinary process.

White has not been charged with a crime. He did not return a phone message left at his home Thursday.
