FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 6, 2018
DIOCESE OF BROOKLYN RESPONDS TO NEW YORK STATE
ATTORNEY GENERAL’S SUBPOENA AND INVESTIGATION
The Diocese of Brooklyn has received the subpoena sent by the New York State Attorney General and we are in the process of reviewing it. We have been collaborating closely with law enforcement for many years and stand ready to work with her office on this investigation.
In 2002, the Diocese of Brooklyn handed over all allegations of sexual abuse of a minor by a priest or deacon, to the district attorneys in Brooklyn and Queens. Since that time, we have adopted a zero tolerance policy and have reported any and all allegations of sexual abuse to law enforcement.
