GA--Victim of pedophile priest speaks for first time

Last month, man reached $4.5 million settlement

The convicted child molester now lives in Maryland

But he spent years in Georgia working in five towns

Group wants Savannah bishop to “do aggressive outreach

“With some effort, pedophile might be locked up again,” SNAP says

WHAT

Holding signs and childhood photos at a sidewalk news conference, a Georgia man who was repeatedly molested as a boy by the state’s most notorious pedophile priest will speak publicly for the first time about his experiences and his sizeable settlement last month with Savannah Catholic officials. He’ll be joined by his attorney.

And clergy sex abuse victims and their supporters will

--blast Catholic officials in four states for their handling of the priest,

--urge them to “do aggressive outreach” so he might be prosecuted again, and

--beg anyone who “saw, suspected or suffered his crimes” to call police or prosecutors immediately.
