MN--Bail is $1 million for predator priest
For immediate release: Wednesday, Nov. 19
Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503 0003, [email protected])
Bail has been set at $1 million for a twice-accused predator priest. For the safety of kids, we hope he stays behind bars until trial. And we hope others will call Roseau County law enforcement agencies now if they have any inklings or information about Fr. Joseph Jeyapaul’s crimes.
