Victims of Dr. Vollmar Urged to Call Hotline (855) 382-3385 to Determine Breadth and Scope of his Alleged Sexual Assaults of Children, Adults, Patients and Students
PHILADELPHIA (April 16, 2019) – Today, attorneys Brian Kent and Guy D’Andrea of Laffey, Bucci & Kent, LLP in Philadelphia and Tom Malone of The Malone Firm, LLC announce that they represent several clients who were sexually assaulted by Quarryville, Pa., Dr. William R. Vollmar in Lancaster County. The sexual assaults occurred while various young men who wish to remain anonymous, on separate occasions, obtained medical treatment from Dr. Vollmar. During what was supposed to be a medical appointment, Vollmar abused his position of power and trust when he allegedly sexually assaulted these young men. Doctor Vollmar was apparently known to perform unnecessary genital exams of young boys throughout various school districts of Pequea Valley and Lampeter-Strasburg and possibly others.
Attorneys Kent and D’Andrea accompanied Victim #1 to the Pennsylvania State Police barracks to report the sexual assault. Victim #1, Kent and D’Andrea are working with law enforcement to ensure Vollmar does not assault or abuse another child or person. As a result of Victim #1’s courage in coming forward, Vollmar was arrested and charged with indecent assault. Shortly after Victim #1 came forward, another male victim, represented by attorney Malone, came forward and likewise, cooperated with the Pa. State Police. Victim #2 gave a full statement to law enforcement detailing the alleged assault perpetrated on him by Vollmar.
Vollmar had access to countless numbers of young males through his partnership, association, and affiliation as a physician with the Pequea Valley School District, Middletown Area School District (MASD), Lampeter-Strasburg School District, and Conestoga Valley High School, as well as his employment with the medical practice of Stephen G. Diamantoni, M.D. who is the Lancaster County coroner. It is believed that Vollmar has also been associated with Lancaster General Hospital. According to news reports, Vollmar has resigned his position with Middletown Area School District, amid the indecent assault allegations. The district issued a letter to parents on April 11, 2019.
Vollmar’s statement to police said that his recent crime was “a huge misunderstanding on my part.” The victims adamantly refute Vollmar’s blatant denial alleging that his sexual assaults began a long time ago and involved victims as young as 13-years-old (the age of Victim #2 when he was first assaulted). Authorities believe Vollmar may be a serial molester and urge other victims to come forward. In fact, when Vollmar became a doctor at Conestoga Valley High School, he ran a “study” where he examined athletes that were not injured. The study looked at the connection between Achilles tendon flexibility and knee injuries. It also involved determining where the athletes were in terms of puberty. Vollmar examined the genitals of each athlete to make this determination.
The victims who have come forward are seeking to hold Vollmar, a predator, for his abuse of power, reputation and medical degree giving him access to sexually assault young boys and men. The victims of Vollmar want to uncover the full history of Vollmar’s assaults and to let other potential victims know that they are not alone and do not have to suffer in silence.
Victims who experienced any improper conduct by Vollmar are urged to come forward and join the other brave young men that have already spoken up and help hold Vollmar accountable. People can call the law firm’s hotline at 855-382-3385 if they have more information about Vollmar of if they have been victimized themselves.
