Fr. James Russo

Diocese:  Diocese of Brooklyn

Notes:  Russo was sued in Brooklyn in 2003 by one man alleging abuse there in 1973. Russo resigned as pastor of his parish in St Petersburg, FL diocese in January, 1997 because of “emotional items.” Within week Bishop Lynch told the parish that “an episode of misconduct occurred many years ago” between Russo and an unidentified minor. Other victims came forward. He left ministry.
