Canada- $20 million clergy sex settlement

For immediate release: Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)

A $20 million clergy sex abuse settlement means one thing: Catholic officials were incredibly scared of the evidence about complicity that would have emerged in court.

That's almost always the motive when the church hierarchy pays this much money to abuse victims.

MO- Predatory preacher is guilty; SNAP responds

For immediate release: Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014 

Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503 0003, SNAPdorris@gmail.com)

We are deeply grateful that now women and girls will be safer because a jury has found that a woman who reported being assaulted by Rev. Stan Archie will be paid $350,000. While no amount of money can adequately compensate a victim of clergy sexual violence, this sum makes it clear that an impartial jury found that church officials acted recklessly with the safety of their flock.
