SNAP responds to conviction of Pastor in Baltimore

The decision today by the Baltimore jury that found Pastor Leon Jones guilty of eight counts of child sexual abuse is one step towards healing the pain that his young victim has suffered. We hope that anyone else who may have been a victim of Jones’ crimes are emboldened by this decision and come forward to police and prosecutors. 

We are grateful to the Baltimore law enforcement officials that arrested and prosecuted Jones for his crimes. Hopefully he is given a long sentence that will help keep children in the Baltimore area safe.
