Br. Antonio F. Antonucci
Antonucci ran a street ministry for young children. Charged in 1993 with fondling a 15-year-old boy. Acquitted by court in 5/1996. Also named in a civil suit against Fr. Albert Liberatore in Scranton, PA. The suit claimed Liberatore’s victim went to Antonucci for help and that Antonucci encouraged him not to tell because it would ruin his life. In 3/2007 the court dismissed the “aiding and abetting claim” against Antonucci, which was part of the suit. Included on the Rockville Centre diocese’s list in 3/2021. Abuse allegedly occurred in a private home in Port Jefferson. (Per the list, Antonucci was of the O.S.F. order; the lawsuit shows him as an O.S.B. monk.)
Our Database of Publicly Accused does not state or imply that individuals facing allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The reports contained in the database are merely allegations. The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements. For more information, see our posting policy.
