IL - Five men sue Chicago evangelist for child sex abuse
For immediate release: Monday October 21, 2013
Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)
A highly visible “urban evangelist” is accused of molesting five boys.
Often, shrewd predators sexually assault “troubled” kids who likely won’t tell or be believed if they do tell. And they often seek close ties with law enforcement to give them added credibility. That’s what we suspect Rev. McLean has done.
We applaud these five brave men for speaking up, seeking justice and exposing a dangerous predator.
We hope that every person who saw, suspected or suffered Rev. McLean’s crimes will step forward, call police and get help.
