District Attorneys across the region have come to an agreement with the Syracuse Roman Catholic Diocese that states specific requirements on reporting sexual abuse.

Broome County District Attorney Jerry Mollen was joined by DA’s that serve seven other counties within the Diocese of Syracuse to discuss details of the memorandum.

The agreement states that any complaint regarding abuse to minors must be reported to the appropriate DA’s office.

It also says that the Diocese will cooperate with the DA’s office and will not conduct its own investigation.

Bishop Robert Cunningham said abusers will be held accountable for their actions.
