| N.J. priest barred from ministry over claim he sexually abused mentally disabled man in '90s|
The Rev. Kevin P. Duggan "adamantly denies" an allegation that he sexually abused a mentally disabled man in the 1990s

The pastor of a Middlesex County church has been barred from ministry indefinitely following an accusation that he sexually abused a developmentally disabled man in the 1990s.
In a letter read aloud at St. James the Less Church in Jamesburg last weekend, Metuchen Bishop Paul Bootkoski alerted parishioners to the allegation against the Rev. Kevin P. Duggan, 59.
Duggan, who has served at six parishes in the diocese, 'adamantly denies these charges,' Bootkoski wrote.
The claim was brought to the diocese in April by the accuser’s caretaker. In July, the alleged victim spoke with the Diocesan Review Board, a panel of lay people and clergy members who examine allegations of sex abuse.
That same month, Duggan took a leave of absence from the church for treatment of alcoholism, Bootkoski wrote. Duggan spent the next four months at Guest House, a Minnesota treatment center for Catholic clergy members with substance abuse problems.
He was scheduled to return to the parish soon, but the sex-abuse allegations have scuttled that plan, Bootkoski said. Duggan also needs more time to deal with his alcoholism, with which he has struggled for 'many years,' the bishop said.
'Even without these charges, Fr. Duggan needs to continue the work of strengthening his physical and emotional health before he can resume facing the workload and the daily stresses of pastoring a parish of nearly 1,700 households,' Bootkoski wrote.
The church will continue to be led by an interim administrator, the Rev. Msgr. John B. Szymanksi.

Duggan was serving at St. James Parish in Woodbridge when the alleged incidents took place. The caretaker told The Star-Ledger Duggan fondled the man, then in his 20s, on at least two occasions on the church’s lower level, known as McCorristin Hall.
In both instances, she said, Duggan instructed the accuser to wait for him in the basement after Mass. The caretaker asked that her name be withheld to protect the man’s identity.
She said the accuser, who suffers from a neurological impairment and who has 'the mind of a child,' told a nurse about the alleged abuse during a hospitalization for emotional problems in April. The nurse immediately contacted police.
The caretaker also reached out to the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office. She said she was told the agency could take no action because the alleged incidents took place too long ago. Sex crimes in New Jersey were subject to a statute of limitations until 1996.
The caretaker said she has no doubt the accuser, now 49, is telling the truth.
'I can’t project what I think he felt, but he doesn’t lie or make things up,' she said. 'After he did tell, it seemed like it was such a relief to him. This is obviously something he kept deep inside.'

She said a representative of the diocese called her last week to inform her about Bootkoski’s letter. During that conversation, she said, she was told the review board found the accuser to be credible.
The alleged victim has accepted the diocese’s offer to pay for counseling, the caretaker said. She said the man’s family has not contemplated a lawsuit.
Though the accuser was an adult at the time of the alleged incidents, his mental impairment raises the question of whether the case should fall under the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, the landmark document crafted by the nation’s bishops in response to the clergy sex abuse crisis.
In his letter, Bootkoski said the case 'may or may not' fall under the charter, which requires that a priest be permanently removed from ministry for a single credible allegation of abuse. As a result, the bishop has referred the case to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
'The diocese will then proceed according to their directions,' Bootkoski wrote.
The bishop’s letter can be found on NJ.com, the online home of The Star-Ledger.
Until the matter is resolved, Duggan may not serve as a priest or wear clerical garb. Erin Friedlander, a spokeswoman for the diocese, said the complaint is the first of a sexual nature against Duggan.
The priest has been the subject of other complaints, mainly stemming from his drinking, parishioners said.
Veronica Kreutzer, a longtime member of the parish, said Duggan sometimes yelled in drunken rages, verbally abused people and made a spectacle of himself during Masses, slurring and stumbling at the altar.
'It’s just really been a mess, and the people of St. James have been without a leader,' she said.
In addition to the Jamesburg and Woodbridge churches, Duggan has served at parishes in North Plainfield, Old Bridge, South River and South Amboy.

| Man wanted in Phillipsburg killing was free on bail in drug case, court records say|
He was released Aug. 16 from the Hunterdon County jail after posting the full bail amount, court records say.
Have you seen this man? Salim R. Newton is wanted by Phillipsburg police on a homicide related to Wednesday night's killing of a 22-year-old woman in the 300 block of Spruce Alley. Courtesy Photo The man wanted in the shooting death of a Phillipsburg woman has been free on $15,000 bail after his arrest last month on a charge of distributing drugs, court records state.Salim R. Newton, whose last known address was in the 500 block of South Main Street in Phillipsburg, posted the full bail amount and was released Aug. 16 from the Hunterdon County jail, three days after he was charged with a single count of distributing heroin and cocaine, according to court records.A warrant was issued for his arrest this morning, hours after a 22-year-old town woman was found shot to death in the 300 block of Spruce Alley. The woman, who police are not naming until family is notified, was dead when police arrived, Phillipsburg police Chief James Faulborn said this morning.As of early this afternoon, police continued to search for the 26-year-old Newton, who faces murder and weapons charges. His bail was set this morning at $1 million by state Superior Court Judge Ann Bartlett, police and court records say.A former neighbor said Newton lived with the victim and her two young children at the South Main Street apartment for roughly a year until they moved out several months ago. The neighbor said the two were dating at the time they lived in the apartment but was unsure where they had moved or if they continued to live with one another.The man, who declined to give his name due to the violent nature of the crime, identified Newton through a photograph and said he only knew him by an alias: L.B. He recalled the victim as a nice woman and said he had pleasant conversations with her and her parents.'She was so sweet,' the neighbor said. 'Both her and her parents were so nice.'Newton, who has a previous address listed in Piscataway, N.J., was also charged in Middlesex County in 2010 with simple assault and contempt of court, records say. Those charges were later downgraded and disposed of in family court, according to court documents.Police ask anyone with information on Newton's whereabouts to call 908-454-1121. All calls will remain confidential.Newton is described as a black man, standing roughly 6 feet 2 inches and weighing 180 pounds. He may be driving an older model, full-size white SUV, according to police.

| State Police catch alleged teen shooter at Trenton hospital after he was hurt during chase|
The foot pursuit continued through backyards and the 17-year-old suspect was able to evade the troopers.
TRENTON — A 17-year-old male who opened fire on a car and crowd of people with the State Police just a block away from the scene Tuesday evening sparked a police chase in the city’s Wilbur section, authorities said.
The foot pursuit continued through backyards and the teenage suspect was able to evade the troopers. He was captured later that night after checking into a city hospital to treat a laceration he had suffered jumping a fence, said Lt. Steve Jones, a State Police spokesman.
No other injuries were reported, but six additional people passing through the area were arrested on warrant charges when the troopers shut down the block.
“They quickly set up a perimeter,” Jones said. “And they started running into people and checking IDs because there had just been a shooting.”
Troopers from the Tactical Patrol and Operations unit out of Hamilton-based Troop C were in Trenton as part of the State Police’s Targeted Integrated Deployment Effort (TIDE), a deployment intended to curb violence in Trenton. Just before 7 p.m., a marked State Police car was near the intersection of Monmouth Street and Walnut Avenue when the shooting began.
“Troopers heard gunshots, and then observed a male firing gunshots at unknown individuals,” Jones said.
As the troopers turned the corner, they allegedly could see the teen firing at people and a car outside an apartment near the corner of Monmouth Street and East State Street. When the troopers rushed toward the scene, the teenaged suspect fled on foot, climbing over a chain-link fence on Walnut Avenue and into backyards, Jones said.
City police units assisted the troopers, a Trenton police spokesman said, but the teenager was eventually able to evade them. A description of the suspect was broadcast over all local police frequencies.
When the 17-year-old sought treatment at Capital Health Regional Medical Center in North Trenton for the cut he suffered jumping the fence, a Mercer County Sheriff’s officer at the hospital realized the teen matched the description. Troopers were called to the hospital, where they identified the teen as their suspect and arrested him.
Troopers searching the area near the chain-link fence at Walnut and Monmouth discovered a semi-automatic handgun on the ground. A records search showed it had been reported stolen out of North Carolina, Jones said.
Charges lodged against the 17-year-old included aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon, receiving stolen property and resisting arrest. He was taken to the Middlesex County Youth Detention Center. Police did not release his name because he is a juvenile.
