Only one New York City prosecutor is brave, wise and caring enough to advocate repealing the state’s archaic child sex abuse deadline that endangers kids and helps predators.

AR--Victims challenge church where abuse happened

For immediate release: Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503 0003 cell, bdorris@SNAPnetwork.org)

A Jonesboro church employee was sentenced yesterday for repeatedly raping the two girls but still faces charges of video voyeurism and child pornography.

Now, we challenge First Assembly of God Church staff and members to aggressively reach out to find others who saw, suspected or suffered crimes by Anthony Waller.

Why?

Because church officials gave Waller access to kids

Because Waller faces more charges

Because police and prosecutors need help pursuing predators

Because the more law enforcement knows about a criminal the more appropriately he can be sentenced.
