A Former Roman Catholic Priest has been accused of sexual abuse by 34 women and 1 man.

Ex- Rev. Adam Prochaski has been accused of children molestation by 34 women and 1 man. Prochaski operated from Holy Cross Parish in Maspeth, Queens. The acts of molestation were alleged to have occurred from 1970-1994.

Attorney Mitchell Garabedian says he is representing 34 women and one man who allege they were sexually abused by the Rev. Adam Prochaski between 1970 and 1994. Prochaski, who was assigned to Holy Cross Parish in Maspeth, Queens, is no longer a priest. The victims were between the ages of 5 and 16 when they were allegedly abused. “The sexual abuse of clients took place in the school, church, rectory next to school, in some clients’ homes and in Prochaski’s car,” Garabedian said.

The school children referred to the ex-priest as 'pig' and 'father pervert'.

“Many of the boys knew he was abusing the girls. And he was nasty to the boys if they found out,” she said, explaining the origins of “Father Pervert.” “The Pig” nickname “didn’t mean he was a slob. It meant he was disgusting,” she said.

A former educator claims that she reported Prochaski to her superiors but that nothing was done about it.

Linda Porcaro, a former Holy Cross educator, says she reported Prochaski to her superiors between 1986 and 1991, but nothing was done.
