Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Father Robert W. Wood:

In 2003, Father Robert Wood was temporarily removed from ministry. He claimed that his removal was in connection with an alleged incident that occurred sixteen years prior. On March 20th, 2018, Wood’s name was included on the Diocese of Buffalo’s list priests who have been accused of child sexual abuse. The Diocese did not disclose any specific information regarding the allegations against him, Wood’s previous assignments or his current location. As of 2016, it is believed that Robert Wood is a retired priest residing in Buffalo, New York.   

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.
