Dunkirk Priest Under Another Abuse Investigation

DUNKIRK – A priest who serves at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church is under investigation again for a previous sexual abuse complaint. 
Our news partner, WIVB-TV in Buffalo, reported that investigators with the Diocese of Buffalo interviewed another person Monday who claims they were abused by Fr. Dennis Riter.
Earlier in the year, Riter was placed on administrative leave while a different complaint against him was investigated.
Riter returned to active ministry when that complaint was found to be unsubstantiated.
Diocesan officials say Riter is not on administrative leave, as of Monday afternoon.
