ARG - Predator priest is “a step closer to prison,” SNAP responds
For immediate release: Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013
Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 862 7688 home, 314 503 0003 cell, SNAPdorris@gmail.com)
A high profile priest, suspected of molesting kids more than a decade ago, is now one step closer to being imprisoned. While we applaud this move, we’re appalled that this criminal has tied up the court system with a seven year trial and 200 hearings over 11 years while spending only one month behind bars despite sexually assaulting at least two boys.
We applaud the victims of Fr. Grassi for their courage and determination. They should be extremely proud of themselves. And Buenos Aires Catholics should be grateful to them for exposing a dangerous pedophile.
Every day Fr. Grassi has walked free, kids have been at risk. Shame on Catholic officials in Argentina for doing virtually nothing to help law enforcement investigate and convict and jail him.
