OH- Youngstown Catholic officials are sued
For immediate release: Thursday, June 19, 2014
Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)
Youngstown Catholic officials are being sued by a day care center owner who married a convicted sex offender.
It's ironic that in this case, Youngstown Catholic officials seemed to take a hard line against abuse perpetrated by a lay person when those same Catholic officials coddle their own predator priests.
