OH- Priest accused, victims respond
Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)
A Catholic priest in Columbus has been placed on leave after allegations of sexual abuse. Since 1969, this priest has worked at 8 locations, including a high school where one of the alleged abuses occurred.
We commend those who reported the crimes. We urge any other individuals who have witnessed or been abused to come forward in order keep this predator priest safely away from children. We hope that the diocese will warn the parishioners of these locations and ask them to report anything they know to the police. Any additional information that would help convict this criminal will help prevent future crimes against children.
