Statement From Attorney Mike Reck and Jeff Anderson & Associates, PA
Today, the Diocese of Buffalo released the names of 42 priests “who were removed from ministry, were retired or left ministry after allegations of sexual abuse of a minor.” Congratulations to the brave survivors who caused this vital disclosure.
With today’s actions, Bishop Malone has taken the first step moving the Diocese of Buffalo away from secrecy and shame and towards transparency and accountability. It is now imperative that the Diocese of Buffalo disclose the full histories and whereabouts of these 42 alleged offenders.
We hope the survivors who are empowered by today’s actions are supported and acknowledged by the Diocese of Buffalo.
