A victim of a predatory Catholic teacher has won his civil trial. We applaud him for having the courage to report and expose crimes by Albert Vaillancourt of the Fall River Catholic diocese and those who ignored or hid those crimes.

PA--Catholic officials exploit technicality; Victims respond

For immediate release: Thursday, April 14, 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)

Three Catholic officials are trying to exploit Pennsylvania’s archaic, predator-friendly laws to evade responsibility for a child molesting cleric who molested more than 100 kids. Shame on them, their colleagues and their supervisors.
