Fr. Robert A. Stolinski
Diocese: Diocese of Buffalo NY
Retired. Diocese announced 6/28/18 that Stolinski’s name was added to its list of accused, and that he was on leave. No other details. Our working assumption is that the allegations are of child sexual abuse, since the list Stolinski’s name was added to was that of those accused of the sexual abuse of minors. Allowed to return to active ministry in 3/19 after the Diocesan Review Board deemed the allegations unsubstantiated.
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.
