Police said they spoke with Newman, who admitted that he had molested several children and said he needed to talk to someone about it. During an interview with police, Newman admitted he had touched six children, ages 4 to 17, in an inappropriate way, sometimes while he was watching porn.

Monsignor Otto Garcia, a vicar at St. Teresa's Church in Woodside, is accused of sexually assaulting 61-year-old Tom Davis when Davis was a teenage alter boy in the 1970s.

"He was able to pick me as a prime victim because of my parents' involvement in the church," Davis said in a press conference Tuesday. "I just didn't think anyone would believe me. I said nothing until my parents passed."

But the friend is priest accused of sexually abusing teenage boys and currently banned from performing his priestly duties by the church. ROSS: Richard Tollner, now a mortgage broker in Albany, New York, was a student at a boy 's Catholic high school where Placa taught.

The abuse allegedly occurred between 1971 and 1973, when Davis was an altar boy at St. Michael's Church in Flushing, Queens. His family was fully enmeshed in church life — his mother was a teacher in the parish school and his father was the parish basketball coach. Davis got a job answering phones in the rectory and Garcia would allegedly come by to visit alone.

"He would start with, 'You look tense, let me rub your back.' Then he'd say, 'Let me rub lower, stand up,' Davis told the New York Daily News in February. "He'd make me stand up, he'd put his hands under my shirt and try to get under my pants. Then he would start grinding me from behind and rub my nipples. I was terrified."

Davis says he tried to push back, but "he was bigger than me — he'd use physical force to keep me trapped, rubbing his groin against me," he recounted. "He'd see how far he could go."

Getting a job at a local grocery store, Davis finally quit working at the rectory. But he still couldn't bring himself to come forward with the abuse because his parents — and his community — held Father Garcia in such high regard. Later, as an adult working as a plumber at Shea Stadium, he feared speaking out would damage his career.

Eventually Garcia was made monsignor, while Davis felt so ashamed he began abusing drugs and alcohol and sabotaging relationships. After years of soul searching and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, he finally reported the abuse to the Diocese of Brooklyn's review board in 2017.

The board determined there was "a lack of evidence" for his accusations, and prosecutors said the statute of limitations had long run out.

"I reported [Garcia] to the diocese and even picked him out of a lineup, but after a two-day investigation, they just swept it under the rug," Davis at Tuesday's press briefing. "I'm not looking for a payday," he told the Daily News. "I'm just trying to get [Monsignor Garcia] out of the ministry."

10 new sex abuse lawsuits against Catholic diocese in Brooklyn

10 new sex abuse lawsuits against Catholic diocese in Brooklyn The number of lawsuits filed against the Catholic dioceses in New York continues to grow.

Monsignor William Lynn, who was to face a second day of cross-examination Thursday, testified Wednesday he had very limited options under parish rules enforced by late Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua. "The cardinal wouldn't allow us to announce in those days why someone was leaving

A second suit against Garcia was also filed by a John Doe, though details have not been made available.

Part of Garcia's responsibilities as moderator of the Curia and vicar general involve investigating allegations of sexual abuse against clergy members. Davis's attorney, Jeff Anderson, describes the monsignor as "the Michael Cohen of the Diocese of Brooklyn."

"[He] is a top diocese official working under three different bishops," he told the Queens Courier. "As a vicar general, he was designated by the bishop to get the reports and investigate them," Anderson said. "He was the guy investigating other priests... the fixer."

This is the first time Garcia has been accused of abuse himself, but he has long been criticized for covering up for other priests — a 2003 lawsuit claimed Garcia "was part of the concerted effort to fraudulently conceal their acts from the plaintiffs and parishioners."

According to the Daily News, Garcia met with alleged victims in the early 2000s, when dozens of sex abuse cases were first uncovered. And he made recommendations to Bishop Thomas Daily of Boston, whose failure to deal with pedophile priests was uncovered by the Boston Globe's "Spotlight" team in 2003.

While still denying any wrongdoing, Garcia has stepped down as a pastor at St. Joan of Arc in Jackson Heights. But Anderson has urged the current head of the Brooklyn diocese, Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio, to remove him from St. Teresa's, where he remains an active parochial vicar.

"Bishop, please, it is time to get him out and get him out now," Anderson said. "Do the right thing."

The cases against Garcia are just two of ten Anderson filed this week against Catholic dioceses in New York — and just a drop in the deluge of filings against religious institutions and youth organizations in the weeks since the state's new Child Victims Act (CVA) took effect.

Signed by Governor Cuomo earlier this year, the CVA temporarily lifts the statute of limitations on child sex abuse lawsuits, allowing victims to seek justice no matter how long they've waited. The cases filed by Anderson detail abuse that allegedly transpired decades ago, from 1952 to 1982. Among the men named are priests, brothers and a Catholic school teachers. More than half are deceased.

In a statement, the Diocese of Brooklyn, which serves 1.2 million Catholics in Brooklyn and Queens, said it has only just learned of the lawsuits and needs "to carefully review the allegations."

"Sexual abuse of a minor is a horrendous crime that has hurt children in our Church and in society as a whole," it added. "[We take] all allegations of sexual abuse seriously."
