Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Robert Solinski:

On June 28th, 2018, The Diocese of Buffalo announced that Father Robert Stolinski’s name was added to its updated list of accused priests. It also stated that he was on leave as of the same year. No other details were included. The list was that of those accused of the sexual abuse of minors, but it is only an assumption that those were the nature of accusations against Stolinksi. He has been allowed to return to active ministry as of March 2019, after the Diocesan Review Board deemed the claims against him unsubstantiated. He was known as being a retired priest in the Jamestown area before the allegations surfaced.
