Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Father Robert Stolinski:

Father Robert Stolinski was ordained to the priesthood in 1970. He served in multiple parishes throughout his career. According to media reports, in June 2018, the Diocese of Buffalo announced that his 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 included those accused of the sexual abuse of minors, but it is only an assumption that those were the nature of accusations against Father Stolinksi.

In March 2019, he returned to active ministry 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. 

Horowitz Law is a law firm representing victims of sexual abuse in the Diocese of Buffalo and throughout New York. The Diocese of Buffalo filed for federal bankruptcy protection in February 2020. Anyone sexually abused by a priest or employee of the Diocese of Buffalo may be entitled to file a claim against the Diocese in these bankruptcy proceedings, but very strict filing deadlines apply. Most victims of abuse in the Diocese of Buffalo will never be able to take action against the Diocese of Buffalo if they miss this bankruptcy filing deadline, so it is important that you contact us immediately to discuss your potential case.
