FL - New lawsuit filed in Orlando, SNAP responds
We are grateful to this brave survivor for coming forward and revealing his abuse. It is a very difficult thing to make allegations of this sort public, but it is an important part of finding others who may have been in similar circumstances. We hope anyone who may have seen, suspected, or suffered crimes at the hands of Fr. William Authenreith to immediately come forward and make a report to police.
It is extremely disturbing to find out that the Diocese of Orlando had knowledge of previous allegations against Fr. Authenreith. If they had allowed the police to investigate instead of doing their own internal investigation, it may have prevented other kids from being victimized. Bishop John Noonan should immediately use all of his available resources – including the diocesan website, parish bulletins, and pulpit announcements – to seek out other victims who may have been scared to speak up beforehand.
