SC- Religious leader pleads guilty, SNAP responds
For immediate release: Thursday, September 4, 2014
Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, firstname.lastname@example.org)
A popular religious official who founded Cathedral Bible Collage has pleaded guilty to forced labor charges. He's also accused of sexual harassment.
The forced labor charges against Reginald Wayne Miller involve international students who came to the collage Miller founded. We hope Miller receives the maximum sentence.
We urge anyone who was hurt by Miller, either by forced labor or sexual harassment, will find the courage to come forward, report to police, and start healing.
