Bronx priest accused of sexual abuse in Westchester

A Bronx priest has been suspended amid allegations that he sexually abused minors in Westchester County about 30 years ago, officials said.

The Rev. Richard Gorman was a priest at St. Barnabas Church in the Woodlawn section of the Bronx, a block away from Yonkers, when the alleged abuse occurred, according to media reports. It is unclear where in Westchester the alleged abuse occurred.

Gorman, now the director of prison chaplains for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, "is not permitted to publicly function as a priest until the matter is resolved," the archdiocese said in a statement Thursday.
Richman said he was informed Wednesday of the accusations, which he believes were made by two people. He said he did not believe there was a possibility of criminal charges, but he expects the accusers to file civil lawsuits.
