We take issue with a number of claims by Denny Hastert and his lawyers. And we applaud Individual D for having the courage to speak in court about Hastert’s wrongdoing. We also applaud attorney Kristi Browne for representing a Hastert victim.

OH-- Seminarian who tried to buy baby pleads guilty

For immediate release: Thursday, April 14, 2016

Statement by Judy Jones of St. Louis, Associate Midwest Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (636 433 2511, SNAPjudy@gmail.com)

We’re grateful that a sexually troubled Ohio seminarian has pled guilty to child sex crimes and hope, for the safety of children, that he’s given the longest sentence possible.

We also worry there may be other kids he’s hurt and deplore how little his former church supervisors are doing to find other victims, witnesses or whistleblowers.
