The New York Child Victims Act

On February 14, 2019 the Child Victims Act was signed into law, effectively reforming the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse survivors in New York. See how the New York Child Victims Act may help you.

New York Priests Accused of Sexual Abuse

For years we have been compiling lists of priests accused of sexual abuse across every New York diocese within the Archdiocese of New York. We share these lists here to help keep New York children and communities safer and lift the veil of secrecy that protects predators within the priesthood. Detailed reports on individual dioceses, where available, have also been included on their respective pages on this website.

You are not alone. We are here to help.

It’s time for justice. It's time to bring the truth out into the light. It’s time for accountability and healing. Before making a decision concerning such serious and sensitive matters, we encourage all survivors of priest sexual abuse to consult with legal counsel before proceeding with a claim against the Archdiocese of New York, the Diocese of Albany, the Diocese of Brooklyn, the Diocese of Buffalo, the Diocese of Ogdensburg, the Diocese of Rochester, the Diocese of Rockville Center, or the Diocese of Syracuse.

Share your story. Take legal action. Call us today.

The most important step you can take as a childhood sexual abuse victim is to contact an attorney immediately.  No amount of money will undo the harm caused but it can bring a sense of justice and closure for victims. Please contact attorney Bill Kelly at or (212) 732-5040.
