Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Ronald Sajdak: 

In November of 2018, Father Ronald Sajdak was suspended from active priesthood over six months after the Diocese of Buffalo received an allegation that Sajdak has sexually abused a boy. The alleged abuse occurred over a 10-year period and started before Ronald Sajdak was ordained as a priest. The victim was ages 13 or 14 when the abuse first occurred, and he claimed that Sajdak blackmailed him with incriminating photos for almost a decade to keep him quiet. According to the Diocese, Sajdak was only a little over 2 and a half years older than the boy, and the “conduct” ended almost 15 years prior to his ordination. On recommendation of the Review Board, Sajdak was returned to active ministry in December of 2018.

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.
