TX --- Wichita Falls man arrested for alleged sexual abuse of a 14 year-old girl

For immediate release: Thursday, May 31

Statement by Barb Dorris, Managing Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503 0003 bdorris@SNAPnetwork.org)

A Wichita Falls man was arrested and charged with indecency with a child following a call to the Wichita Falls Police. We are grateful that law enforcement is investigating. But we fear there could be more victims who have not yet come forward. We want survivors to know it is safe to come forward and report to police. We encourage all victims to report to law enforcement, not church officials.
