Diocese:  Diocese of Brooklyn

Religious Order:  Vicentian (C.M.)

Notes:  Man notified Diocese and Order in 2003 that Agostino had abused him. Order investigated and could not find sufficient information to support the allegations. He was not removed from duties but Bishop did meet with the accuser. In 4/09 the same man came forward again, this time with more evidence and proof that he was a minor at the time of the abuse. Diocese told County DA and Order removed Agostino from duty at St. John the Baptist pending further investigation.
