Fr. Robert W. Schutte

Ordained: 1943
Status: Accused

Diocese: Archdiocese of Cincinnati OH

After ordination Schutte spent a year in a St. Augustine FL parish, after which he returned to his native OH. He taught high school and served in parishes as an assistant and then pastor in the Cincinnati archdiocese. He also was an assistant Air Force chaplain in FL.; the time-period for that is unclear. He retired in 1984. In late 2003 Schutte’s privileges were removed after allegations arose that he sexually abused a minor several decades before. He died a little over a month later, in 1/04, at age 89.

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.
