Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790,314 645 5915 home, davidgclohessy@gmail.com)

Damage to the Paterno family name is becoming increasingly self-inflicted as relatives of the controversial coach continue to deny evidence that he was told long about Jerry Sandusky’s child sex crimes. It’s a sad and hurtful sight.

NC--Accused church child molester was also in Charlotte

For immediate release: Monday, July 11, 2016

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790314 645 5915 home, davidgclohessy@gmail.com)

A South Carolina native who spent time in Charlotte and was a teacher and church elder is now accused of molesting a child. We urge his former Jehovah’s Witness colleagues and supervisors – in SC, NC and California (where he now faces criminal charges) to aggressively seek out any current or former church members who may have also been hurt by this predator.
