List of Diocesan Clergy for whom the Diocese received allegations of sexual misconduct with a minor

Letter to the Faithful from Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn:

Notice: The below list(s) of accused clergy is based upon reports and allegations by victims or the families of victims.

The listing of a clergy’s name does not state or imply that clergy charged with allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The charges made against these clergy are just charges until judicially determined even if many others could find them credible.

Based upon the evidence available to the Diocese, the allegations against the persons set forth on the below lists were deemed to be credible unless otherwise noted. By “credible” the Diocesan officials believe that the allegations may be true. As to deceased priests and laicized priests generally no investigation would be implemented if the claim was first made after the priest left ministry. In addition, generally no investigation would be undertaken as to priests who admitted to the allegation. The judicial system, however, presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. In a civil action a person charged with wrong doing is likewise presumed not to be liable as charged unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements.

Clergy is a broader term than priest and includes Bishops, priests and deacons. This list(s) includes all Diocesan clergy for whom allegations were reported to the Diocese or the IRCP program unless the allegations were unsubstantiated or investigations are still pending. Professional and reasonable efforts have been undertaken to ensure that an allegation has been received regarding each priest on this list while that person was a clergy in active ministry. For clergy in active ministry at the time of the allegation, the Diocese will undertake an investigation. While these investigations assist the Diocese in determining whether or not a clergy member should be in active ministry, it does not legally confirm the veracity of any actual allegation, and this list is not a representation of the legal case history, or part thereof, of an individual.

The below lists are accurate to the current knowledge of Diocesan authorities as of the date set forth on the list(s). The Diocese reserves the right to change, amend or update these lists if additional information is provided to it. In the event that any changes are made to the list(s), the revised, modified or updated list(s) will be posted on this website immediately. Please check the latest information posted here to become informed of any changes.

The Diocese is currently sponsoring an Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program (“IRCP”). Kenneth Fienberg is the independent administrator of the IRCP and is not bound to, or by, any actions or determinations of the Diocese. This list is not intended to imply approval, determination, or knowledge by the IRCP Administrator of any information set forth herein.

* Blue italicized text indicates information added as of Feb. 22, 2019.

Priests against whom allegations have been made that are not listed above.

An allegation was made against Reverend Edward Offenheiser, who is now deceased, and Reverend Vincent Zollo, a resigned priest. The Diocese found the allegations to be unsubstantiated but the claimants were permitted to participate in the IRCP. In the IRCP the Administrator is independent and not bound to any determination(s) of the Diocese.

An allegation has been made against Rev. Msgr. Otto Garcia. As is the standard protocol of the Diocese, an investigation was completed. A professional investigator was engaged to undertake this investigation. The matter was then referred to the Diocesan Review Board for its determination whether or not the allegations were credible. The Review Board is composed of up to nine persons, a majority of whom are always laypersons who are not employees of the Diocese. These individuals all have an expertise which assists in evaluating cases. The Review Board unanimously found the allegations to be unsubstantiated.

An allegation was made against Reverend James C. Tugwood who is now deceased. This allegation was never found credible by the Diocese but a claimant was permitted to participate in the IRCP program. As to Father Tugwood, the IRCP program did not find the allegation to be substantiated.
