Diocese of Brooklyn Clergy Members with Credible Child Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Them

The Diocese of Brooklyn recently released a list of clergy who have been credibly accused of sexual abuse of a minor. We have provided the details about these individuals in the list below.

New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed the Child Victims Act into law in February of 2019. This law makes it easier than before for survivors of child sexual abuse New York to file civil lawsuits against their abusers.

For help holding any abuser—including accused members of the clergy—accountable in civil court, contact the qualified clergy sexual abuse lawyers at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP by calling 1-800-VICTIM2 (842-8462) or filling out the form below.
