NM - Notorious Michigan predator priest is now in NM
For immediate release: Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Statement by Barbara Dorris, SNAP Outreach Director, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314-503-0003 SNAPdorris@gmail.com)
We are upset that a former priest who was serving jail for molesting Michigan kids is now living in Albuquerque New Mexico.
He is Jason E. Sigler, who pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree criminal sexual assault in 2003.
We urge Santa Fe Archbishop is Michael Jarboe Sheehan to warn his flock about Sigler.
We also encourage individuals in the Michigan area who may have seen, suspected, or suffered abuse by Sigler to call police, expose wrongdoers, protect kids, deter cover ups and start healing.
