KY--Louisville priest found guilty of abusing at least two boys

For immediate release: 4/16

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790  SNAPclohessy@aol.com)

We are grateful that James Schook, a former priest, has been found guilty of sexually abusing at least two boys. However, we are worried that he may receive a light sentence.

We are especially grateful to the brave victims and their families. Their courage to speak up and their wisdom to seek justice have been heroic and will protect more kids. Because of their compassion and determination, this dangerous predator will always be publicly known as a child molester.

We hope Schook will be spending a long time behind bars away from innocent children. 

Schook was removed in 2009 following allegations that he abused a minor. The following year he was permanently removed after the church found the allegations credible. He was formally charged by police in 2011.
