Case against predator priest moves forward; SNAP responds

Statement by Barbara Dorris Outreach Director 314 862 7688, 314 503 0003 cell SNAPdorris@gmail.com

We are grateful for the courage and persistence of this victim, Warren Tucker. We are grateful for the courage and persistence of this caring victim. We appreciate his bravery in exposing his predator and his wisdom in taking legal action. Every time a sex abuse victim speaks up, it helps protect kids and heal others.

Often, in these cases, other victims, witnesses and whistleblowers sit back, confident that police and prosecutors will prevail. But predators often get top notch lawyers, exploit legal loopholes, and escape consequences. That’s the last thing that should happen here. So it’s crucial that anyone with information or suspicions about Casey contact law enforcement immediately.

When heinous crimes are exposed, we can’t just sit around in shock. We must take action to jail wrongdoers and help victims.

(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. We’ve been around for 23 years and have more than 10,000 members. Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers. Our website is SNAPnetwork.org)
