SC - Child sex case filed vs. Citadel; SNAP responds
For immediate release: Thursday, September 12, 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)
A new civil lawsuit says that a youngster was sexually abused at the Citadel, later joined the staff there but was fired when he tried to stop others from being sexually assaulted.
What a horrific triple betrayal: first, by Citadel officials who hired the predator, then by the predator, and then again by Citadel officials who 'shot the messenger' instead of helping the wounded and protecting the vulnerable.
Let’s hope that every person who saw, suspected or suffered child sex crimes and cover ups at the Citadel - by Louis "Skip" Reville or other predators - will find the courage and strength to speak up, call police, expose wrongdoing, protect kids and start healing.
