Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Florian Jasinski:

According to media reports, in March 2018, Father Florian Jasinski’s name was included in the Diocese of Buffalo’s list of priests who “were removed from ministry, were retired, or left ministry after allegations of sexual abuse of a minor.” No information regarding the allegations was disclosed, however, the list includes deceased priests only if they have more than one allegation. He died in 1983.

In August 2019, Father Jasinski was accused in a lawsuit filed under the NY Child Victims Act, of sexually abusing a child, age 8-9 years old, from 1982 to 1983. The child participated in church and youth activities at St. Stanislaus. The gender of the child was not disclosed.

In 2020, Fr. Jasinski was named in another lawsuit against the Diocese of Buffalo. He was accused of sexually abusing a minor. The details of the sexual abuse allegations, including when and where the alleged abuse occurred, or the victim’s age/gender, are unknown.

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.
