Suffolk County Grand Jury Report
On February 10, 2003, the Suffolk County Grand Jury Report was released after an investigation into the Diocese of Rockville Centre, its priest and its parishes. The Grand Jury examined personnel records of the diocese’s priests, including secret archive files of 43 priests. The Grand Jury concluded that “officials in the Diocese failed in their responsibility to protect children” and “ignored complaints about the sexually abusive behavior of priests.”
