Hollywood talent manager charged with abuse, SNAP responds

We applaud the brave young man who came forward and spoke out against Martin Weiss and the sexual violence that he committed for years. To come forward at such a young age is impressive and courageous, and likely has saved many other children from more exploitation and abuse by Weiss.
