Buffalo bishop’s mansion being sold to compensate abused
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo says the sale of the bishop’s mansion is moving forward as part of efforts to compensate victims of clergy sexual abuse.
Bishop Richard Malone announced in April that he would put the E.B. Green-designed property, worth more than $1 million, on the market. On Thursday, WKBW-TV reported there’s a buyer.
A spokeswoman for the diocese says details of the sale won’t be disclosed until the deal has closed.
Malone already has moved to a former convent.
The embattled bishop has faced calls for his resignation over his handling of allegations of child sexual abuse by priests.
