Father Jason Dolan was ordained a priest of the Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy of Pittsburgh in 1998, who served in the Diocese of Pittsburgh.

The Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy of Pittsburgh revoked his duties as pastor. Both the FBI and the Pennsylvania State Police were involved in Father Dolan’s case. He could have spent 10 years in prison and been fined $250,000, but he was sentenced to only 30 months and lifetime probation in 2006.
