Father Albert Wehby is a retired priest of the Eparchy of Newton of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church. From 1992-2000 he was employed by Saint John the Baptist Melkite Greek Catholic Church in Northlake, Illinois.
On March 14, 2016, a lawsuit was filed against the Eparchy and Saint John by a young woman who alleged that she was sexually abused by Wehby from 1995 through 1998 when she attended church at the Northlake parish. She was 14 to 17 years old at the time.
Wehby was subsequently transferred to Saint Anne Melkite Greek Catholic Church in North Hollywood, California.
