Rev. Ronald Tully was among those named by the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington as being 'credibly accused' of sexual abuse of minors.
An ex-Catholic high school vice principal was among several priests named Monday by the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington as being "credibly accused" of sexually abusing minors.
Monsignor Ronald Tully became a priest for the archdiocese in 1970s when he left the Augustinian Order. He was among more than two dozen others who faced allegations of abusing minors since 1948.
The archdiocese did not elaborate on the allegations that landed Tully on the list, but NJ.com reported that a woman settled a lawsuit with Paterson Roman Catholic Diocese in 2015 regarding claims that Tully fondled her 20 times when she was a student at Pope Pius XII Regional High School in Passaic County.
