PA- Victims applaud PA Supreme Court on Lynn case
For immediate release: Thursday, May 8, 2014
Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790,SNAPclohessy@aol.com)
We are grateful that PA's highest court will look at this case. And we hope they will side with vulnerable kids over complicit adults.
If Msgr. Lynn walks free, we fear that more child sex crimes will be concealed and more kids will be hurt.
If Msgr. Lynn is jailed, we are confident that others will be deterred from hiding predators and endangering kids.
