In March 2019, his name was included on the Jesuit list of “USA Northeast Province Jesuits with Credible Allegations of Sexual Abuse of a Minor.” Details of the allegations, including the information about the age/gender of his alleged victim/victims, the nature of the alleged sexual abuse, or Dittirch’s assignments at the time of the alleged abuse is unknown.
