Attorney Claims Diocese Refuses to Settle Abuse Case

There are more allegations of sexual abuse in the Albany Diocese.

Attorney John Aretakis and his client, Joseph Woodward, spoke to the media Monday.

Aretakis claims the Albany Diocese is refusing to settle a sexual abuse case with Woodward. He said last year the diocese settled another case with almost the exact same set of circumstances.

Woodward claims that Father Dozia Wilson abused him in the Albany area as well as on trips to Boston, which also occurred in the case that was settled.

Aretakis said, "What we want to know and what Joe Woodward is here to know, is why is he is treated completely opposite from that evidently compassionate action."

An Albany Diocese spokesman said this is not new to the diocese. The suit became public in late April. He also said Wilson was removed from the ministry 13 years ago because of complaints back then.
