MO--Victims blast archbishop for his claims re 2nd victim's family

For immediate release: Friday, April 18

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790 , SNAPclohessy@aol.com)

Our deepest sympathies go out to both families whose children have been sexually violated by Fr. Joseph Jiang.

Because of the first criminal charges against him, Fr. Jiang was suspended from his parish in June 2012. Carlson assured his flock that Fr. Jiang would be kept away from kids. Evidently, Carlson didn't honor his promise, because Fr. Jiang is now charged with molesting a different child just two months later (in August 2012).

We especially feel sorry for these brave families because Archbishop Robert Carlson continues to play mean-spirited legal hardball to protect his close pal, Fr. Jiang.

Today, through one of his public relations staff, Carlson released a statement impugning the honesty and motives of the family of the second child who has reportedly been sexually assaulted by Fr. Jiang.

MO--Fr. Jiang arrested for second time

For immediate release: Friday, April 18

Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503 0003, SNAPdorris@gmail.com)

Fr. Joseph Jiang has been arrested for a second time on child sex charges against a second victim. Our hearts ache for this family and for every family that has been hurt by this cunning predator and by his Catholic supervisors – especially Archbishop Robert Carlson – who repeatedly refuse to take simple steps to protect innocent children from child molesting clerics.
