IL - Statute of limitations run out on priest; SNAP responds
For immediate release: Thursday, October 10, 2013
We are upset that Illinois's archaic and predatory friendly laws prevent prosecutors from pursuing charges against Fr. Robert “Bud” DeGrand.
It's now more important than ever that those who saw, suspected or suffered Fr. DeGrand's crimes come forward. It's especially crucial that they contact police immediately.
We particularly call on current and former Catholic employees who may have knowledge or suspicions about clergy sex crimes and cover ups to speak up. Silence only helps those who commit and conceal heinous acts against kids.
