Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Kevin Kortina:

Father Kevin Kortina was ordained a priest in 1970 and served in the Archdiocese of Newark. He served in multiple parishes throughout his career. According to media reports, in February 2019, his name was included on its list of 63 priests “credibly accused” of child sex abuse. He was credibly accused of the sexual abuse of one child. Almost no information on the allegations against each priest on the list, including the age/gender of the victims, or the priest’s assignment at the time of the alleged abuse was disclosed.

“This list of names is the result of an extensive review of Archdiocesan records dating back to 1940. All names were previously reported to law enforcement agencies. The Archdiocese of Newark has a zero-tolerance policy for any type of mistreatment or misconduct involving children and young adults. No member of the clergy with a credible allegation of sexual abuse of a minor remains in ministry.”
