Jury rejects brothers' clergy-abuse allegations: SNAP Responds
Every time a victim of abuse and cover-up uses the tried-and-true justice system to expose their perpetrator and seek accountability, children are protected right now. We are so proud of these two men, who fought the odds and had their day in court. They are heroes to the tens of thousands of victims around the world who will never be able to stand up and speak.
Although the jury did not find in the victims' favor, a well-known perpetrator was questioned in open court. He admitted many of his crimes. The Franciscan cover-up of those crimes was also exposed, including the fact that for at least 5 years, Gus Krumm was supposed to be on restricted ministry, but instead was given full access to kids. We hope that his other victims will find the strength to seek help.
If you have been abused, or have seen or suspected abuse, please call law enforcement. There is help available. No child ever deserves to be abuse, and no adult deserves to suffer in silence and shame.
