AZ- Phoenix bishop should warn flock re predator SNAP responds
For immediate release: Tuesday, July 23
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)
In what an expert calls a “highly unusual move,” a predator priest - who has quietly been living in Phoenix and is licensed to teach in Arizona - is seeking $450,000 in “back pay,” from his Catholic supervisors.
Fr. Marvin T. Knighton was tried on two child sexual abuse charges in Milwaukee in 2003. The statute of limitation had expired on one of the charges. Knighton was acquitted on the other charge.
But Milwaukee Catholic officials dismissed him because they found at least two of his four victims credible.
Knighton is believed to be at (623) 476-5261, 29433 N 22nd Ave. in Phoenix. He is believed to be licensed to teach in Arizona.
We urge Phoenix’s bishop – and all Arizona Catholic employees - to do all they can to warn parents about Kingston. The more the public knows about this predator, the safer children will be.
