NE - 2 predator priests should be criminally charged, SNAP says
For immediate release: Friday, Nov. 22, 2013
Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)
Two Nebraska predator priests have been disciplined by the Vatican.
We strongly urge Archbishop George Lucas to submit the evidence used in the church investigation to secular authorities so that Fr. Alfred Salanitro and Fr. Franklin Dvorak might be criminally charged, convicted and kept away from kids, instead of just being removed from ministry.
Archbishop Lucas and other Catholic officials have a duty to insure the kids’ safety of by making sure these predators are prosecuted and kept away from potential victims, not just ousted from their church positions.
We encourage anyone that has seen, suspected, or suffered abuse by Salanitro and Dvorak to report what they know to the police, not the archdiocese, in order will expose wrongdoers, protect kids, deter cover ups and start healing
