I am a Catholic priest, recently retired from the Archdiocese of New York. I worked for many years as chaplain at Sing Sing Prison and, after retiring, wrote a book about it, exposing some of the gross corruption in the criminal justice system. That book, REFUGE IN HELL, was published by Orbis Press in 2019. I blew the whistle on a predatory priest in my former parish in 1996, suffering many repercussions until he was finally de-frocked in 2005, after having molested altar boys in numerous parishes, at least six of whom committed suicide. Ten years ago, I co-founded a group of other whistleblowers who all had similar experiences. That is why I decided to write a book about clergy sexual abuse from the perspective of whistleblowers.
