Fr. David E. Wisniewski
Diocese: Diocese of Ogdensburg NY
Wisniewski was one of four priests removed from parish assignments in 6/02 as result of the zero-tolerance policy resulting from the recent Dallas Bishops’ Conference. Wisniewski was associate pastor for about two years at Notre Dame Pharish in Malone during the mid-1980s. Diocese said all four priests had substantiated allegations against them and all had been through some form of therapy. On diocese’s list 11/13/18.
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.
