The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests
SNAP Press Release
Clergy sex victims to hold candlelight vigil
They remember victims who took their own lives
Group seeks info to help convict accused predators priests
It begs those who “saw, suspected or suffered abuse to speak up”
SNAP also wants to help police and prosecutors successfully convict and jail the four recently-charged Philadelphia clerics who have committed or concealed clergy sex crimes. But often, the group says, once corrupt clerics are charged, many with knowledge of their crimes become complacent and stay silent, which SNAP believes is risky and wrong.
And often accused priests hire top notch defense lawyers, exploit loopholes, win delays and ultimately get off on technicalities or receive very lenient sentences, SNAP maintains.
So the group is publicly calling on everyone who with any information about the alleged wrongdoers to contact law enforcement immediately
