Fr. Robert A. Stricker

Ordained: 1948
Status: Accused

Diocese: Archdiocese of Cincinnati OH

Stricker, age 84 and retired, was placed on leave by the archdiocese 5/01/08 pending an investigation of claims that he sexually abused a boy in the 1950s at St. William’a in Price Hill. Archdiocese had investigated the same man’s allegations in 1993 but nothing conclusive found. The man provided new information in 2008 which Bishop Pilarczyk said had “a semblance of truth.” Stricker was restored to ministry in 7/08 when the archdiocese investigation determined the claim could not be substantiated. Died 3/22/17.

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.
