Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503 0003 cell, bdorris@SNAPnetwork.org)
A Newark NJ Catholic priest faces child pornography charges and a court hearing this week. We hope he’s convicted. We call on Newark’s top Catholic official, Archbishop John Myers, to aggressively reach out to anyone who may have information or suspicions about his crimes.
And we hope this news prompts others who may have seen, suspected or suffered his crimes to call police so Fr. Kevin A. Gugliotta might be charged with and convicted on other offenses and be kept away from kids even longer.

Unusual child abuse suit is filed
It’s against huge, for-profit company
Firm does foster care placement across US
State agency found that it deceived foster mom
That led to a teenage boy abusing her grandchild
Then, the firm retaliated against her in two ways, suit says
An unusual new lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a boy, his mom and his grandmother. It charges that a huge, nation-wide company deceived a veteran foster parent, knowingly put a teenager who had molested before into her home, and retaliated against her after she reported that the teen sexually abused her grandchild.
