Fr. Robert J. Cedolia
Diocese: Diocese of Pittsburgh PA
Placed on leave in 8/19 after an allegation was made to the IRCP that he sexually abused an 8-year-old boy in 1998 while pastor of Our Lady of Joy in Plum. His alleged victim said he was training for first communion when the priest abused him twice. Cedolia denied the allegations. He was criminally charged in 6/21. Found not guilty by a jury in 11/22.
Our Database of Publicly Accused does not state or imply that individuals facing allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The reports contained in the database are merely allegations. The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements. For more information, see our posting policy.
