Letter to Mississippi and Wisconsin US Attorneys regarding Brother West
SNAP has written to U.S. Attorneys in two separate states, urging them to get involved in an investigation into a former Fransiscan monk, Brother Paul West.
SNAP's letter was spurred by recent news regarding the hardball tactics that church officials used in Mississippi in settling with some of Brother West's survivors. A detailed article by Mike Rezendes can be found here.
