Priest Charged With Sodomizing Young Boy A Catholic priest, no longer active in the Church, is charged with repeatedly sodomizing a young Suffolk County boy. The abuse allegedly took place while 56-year-old Barry E. Ryan, who lives in Florida, was visiting Long Island.
According to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, Ryan was charged with first-degree sodomy and was being arraigned in First District Court in Central Islip on Friday. The DA said Ryan has confessed to the abuse, which allegedly occurred at a private home on the Island between May and October of last year.
The Brooklyn Diocese notified Suffolk authorities of the alleged abuse
The Brooklyn Diocese notified Suffolk authorities of the alleged abuse last month. Ryan had served as a priest there in the 80s.
The DA said in a written statement by Ryan he revealed he had received in-patient treatment for pedophilia, depression and alcoholism this past year in a Maryland psychiatric hospital.
