Diocese of Rockville Centre
Summary of Abuse Allegations Against Priest K:
In 2003, the Suffolk County Grand Jury released a report of accusations made against 23 Roman Catholic priests in the Diocese of Rockville Centre. The priests, whose names were omitted, were identified only by letters in the report. According to the report, the identity of Priest K is believed to be unknown.
It stated that he was accused of sexually abusing one child during his first assignment.
“The priest had once gone on a retreat with the victim’s father and was a frequent visitor in their home. When Priest K invited the boy to travel with him to the home of a relative, his parents readily agreed.”
In 1998, the survivor recorded a conversation in which the Priest admitted the abuse. He later sued and settled for $160,000.
Priest K later abused another child whose father complained to the Diocese. No action was taken and he remained in ministry.
