Statement by Barbara Dorris, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503-0003 bdorris@SNAPnetwork.org
A former Catholic priest was arrested and is facing nine indictments child sex abuse charges in Jasper County, SC. We are so grateful for the two brave survivors who worked with prosecutors to make this happen.
Bishop Mark Bartchak, head of the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown, recently announced the new seven members of his Diocesan Review Board. The Pennsylvania State Attorney General once described the previous Board as a tool for concealing sex abuse allegations.
