WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- A Catholic Priest has been accused of sexual abuse of minors in Westchester County, according to multiple reports. 

Father Richard Gorman, the director of prison chaplains for the archdiocese, allegedly committed the acts 30 years ago. The archdiocese immediately reported the allegations to law enforcement official, Catholic New York reported. 

Two accusers have already come forward and investigators are reportedly waiting on a third. The Westchester District Attorney's office has opened an inquiry into the matter, The New York Times said.
