Former Head Of Salesian Brothers Of Don Bosco For Eastern United States Arrested In New Rochelle

August 31, 2012 - 17:51

Tb mccormickThe Rev. Richard McCormick was arrested Thursday in New Rochelle and is expected to be arraigned in Massachusetts on allegations he molested a child three decades ago. He is to be arraigned on 5 counts of child rape. McCormick, who is in his 70's was the former director of the Marian Shrine in Stony Point.

Police allege that the 5 counts took place in Ipswich, MA in 1981 and 1982 when the alleged victim was 11 and 12 years old.

Boston Globe:

McCormick, 71, the former provincial of the Salesian Brothers of Don Bosco for the eastern United States and Canada, has already been sued by nine people who alleged he sexually molested them as boys.

According to the Globe, McCormick will be returning to New Rochelle: blockquote>Attending today’s arraignment was the Reverend Steve Dumais, who is the current vice provincial for the Salesians order in New Rochelle and who told the court he would be McCormick’s “custodian” when he returns to New York.

“Our whole reason is to work with young people, especially the poor. So these charges are very egregious,’’ Dumais said. “The reality of it is that it’s sad, certainly, that one of our own has been arrested and charged with a criminal complaint. We are doing our very best to support the work of the authorities the best we can.’’

The St. Petersburg Times, in 2002, reported on an incident involving McCormick at St. Petersburg Catholic High School:

A priest at St. Petersburg Catholic High School has resigned after a female student complained that he greeted her with a hug and a kiss. The Rev. Richard McCormick, 61, who taught theology and English, was granted a leave of absence while the complaint was investigated. Later, the school and McCormick "mutually agreed that it is in the best interest of the school community that Father McCormick not return," according to a statement by the Diocese of St. Petersburg.
