Local Priest under Investigation for Sexual Abuse
April 24, 2012
The Albany Roman Catholic Diocese is investigating a priest following allegations of abuse.
A press conference was held Tuesday in front of the Albany Diocesan Headquarters by the group Road to Recovery.
A lawsuit claims Father Jeremiah Nunan, Pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in Cairo and Our Lady of Knock Mission in East Durham, abused two people.
The alleged victims’ family says their two sons were abused over the course of many years.
We reached out to the Diocese and they tell FOX 23 they reached out to police the day they received an allegation of abuse.
Father Nunan has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
