A priest in the Syracuse Catholic Diocese accused of abuse has been cleared of wrongdoing.

He had been placed administrative leave a month ago, following alleged abuse of a minor, 27 years ago.

The allegation was deemed not credible by the Diocesan Review Board which is made up of four lay professionals, and clergy.

The allegation was first made to the Onondaga County District Attorney’s Office which was later forwarded to the diocese after its review.

The DA's office found no proof or evidence of wrongdoing.
