SNAP Press Release
Another fraud & cover up lawsuit is filed against cleric
He worked at several parochial schools in MN, ND, WI and CA
Victims urge archdiocesan and school staff to "reach out to others he’s hurt”
Just this year, suspended pedophile faces four new child sex abuse lawsuits
Yet, even now, predator walks free and lives across the street from a boy’s school
According to this new lawsuit, filed yesterday in Ramsey County, Rose allegedly "engaged in unpermitted, harmful and offensive sexual contact" with a 15 year old parochial school student on a field trip in Chicago in 1969 or 1970.
In February, another similar lawsuit was filed that accuses Rose’s church supervisors of knowing about Rose’s crimes, yet letting him remain working at a school.
In 2003, Rose was apparently sued for molesting kids for the first time (in California). That case settled for more than a million dollars.
SNAP says there’s no evidence that Catholic church or school officials warned anyone when Rose was transferred from school to school and state to state.
Rose was even allowed to chaperone students on overnight field trips and school events.
Rose also taught at two other schools in Minnesota (De La Salle High School in Minneapolis and Archbishop Brady High School in West St. Paul), and two others in adjacent states (Shanley High School in Fargo ND and Pacelli High School in Stevens Point WI). By attending events at the Christian Brothers Retreat Center in Dunrovin MN, Rose also had contact with perhaps hundreds of Catholic children from the upper Midwest.
Rose also reportedly worked at Red Wing Juvenile Correctional Facility in MN.
SNAP is also hoping that Rose may yet be prosecuted for his crimes, if more individuals with knowledge of his wrong doing find the courage to step forward and call police.
One of the news conference participants had Rose as a teacher at Archbishop Brady High School.
Rose lives now directly across the street from a Catholic school in Chicago. He's believed to be in his 70s. http://www.bishop-accountability.org/news2009/01_02/2009_02_27_Brewer_StPaul.htm
Rose’s Minnesota victims are represented by St. Paul attorney Patrick Noaker (651-227-9990, 612-961-1307 cell). His California victim was represented by Hayward CA attorney Rick Simons (510-582-1080).
