MN- Files on Duluth predator released; SNAP responds
For immediate release: Friday, Sept. 5, 2014
Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, firstname.lastname@example.org)
A Twin Cities attorney has released long-secret Catholic Church records about a predator priest who worked in the Duluth area. He is Fr. Richard Jeub.
We're sad that information about Duluth predator priests is still being kept secret by Duluth Catholic officials. It's a shame that a victims' lawyer must disclose information about child molesting clerics that should be released by Duluth's bishop.
A copy of Fr. Jeub's assignment history is available at BishopAccountability.org
We urge anyone who saw, suspected or suffered crimes by Jeub – or other clerics – to get help, seek justice and start healing. No one benefits when victims stay silent.
