Father Elefterios Stavrakis was at one time a priest in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Amercia. In the 1980’s he served at Saint Gerasimos Greek Orthodox Church in New York, New York.
The priest was found guilty of trying to bribe an undercover Internal Revenue Service agent to avoid paying taxes in 1988.
In August of 2012, Stavrakis was arrested for disorderly conduct and domestic violence for an attack on his wife’s live-in aide. The injuries to the aide were reported to be minor.
