NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The following list was released by Archbishop Timothy Dolan on Friday, detailing clergy credibly accused of sexually abusing children.

He also noted “there is not a single priest or deacon of the archdiocese of New York against whom there has been a credible and substantiated claim of abuse against a minor currently in ministry.”

List of Archdiocesan Clergy Credibly Accused of Sexual Abuse of a Minor or the Subject of Eligible IRCP Compensation Claims

Set forth below is a list of clergy of the Archdiocese of New York who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing a minor or possessing child pornography, or who were the subject of a claim made to the Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program (IRCP) that was deemed eligible for compensation. This list includes only archdiocesan clergy, which consists of bishops, priests, and deacons who were incardinated in the Archdiocese of New York. It does not include priests belonging to religious orders or institutes, many of which have already released their own lists of accused priests, nor “extern” priests who were ordained in other dioceses.

  • the accused admitted the allegation;
  • ​​​

  • the accused was convicted of a crime in connection with the allegation; or

Father Christopher Pliauplis, an archdiocesan priest who had been accused of sexually abusing a minor, was found not guilty by an ecclesiastical court on December 14, 2007. Two archdiocesan clergy, Father James McLucas and Deacon James Rush, were accused of inappropriate sexual conduct following assignments in the Diocese of Harrisburg, in Pennsylvania. In Father McLucas’ case, the victim stated in a court filing that she was not a minor when the sexual activity occurred. Deacon Rush was determined by the Diocese of Harrisburg not to have sexually abused a minor. Nonetheless, both men were suspended and remain out of ministry.

The following archdiocesan clergy are awaiting final canonical or archdiocesan disposition of allegations against them.


The following archdiocesan clergy do not meet the criteria set forth above, but the IRCP’s independent administrators have determined that claims against them were eligible for compensation. In reviewing this list, it is important to note:

  • The clergy on the following list had already died or left ministry when the claims about them were made to the IRCP. As such, these clergy did not have an opportunity to respond to the allegations made about them or provide a defense.
  • While the IRCP is a widely praised program which is being emulated across the country, it is a compensatory program and not an adjudicatory body. As such, it is not required to adhere to the same standards as a court of law.
  • A determination by the IRCP that a claim is eligible for compensation is not equivalent to a finding by a judge or jury that a clergy member is liable for sexual abuse of a minor under civil or criminal law.
  • Certain archdiocesan clergy members who are on the above lists were also the subject of eligible IRCP compensation claims.
