Another Pittsburgh Predatory Cleric Is “outed” - SNAP Responds
June 19, 2014
Another person has disclosed having been molested at a Pittsburgh Catholic school and we've learned the name of another credibly accused child molesting Catholic cleric.
That means that in just three months, nine clerics have been publicly accused of sexually assaulting Pittsburgh kids.
We are deeply grateful to every single former North Catholic student who has reported having been hurt by Marianist clerics there. Now, we hope that others who saw, suspected or hid this wrongdoing will speak up too.
It's possible that at least one or two of the school staff who committed or concealed crimes at North Catholic can be criminally charged, convicted and kept away from kids. It's possible that they might also be sued in civil cases or punished by church officials.
But only if those who have been so deeply hurt contact police and prosecutors, not church figures. And it's more likely only if those who knew of or suspected abuse also step forward.
We again urge Bishop David Zubek to use his massive resources to urge anyone who saw, suspected or suffered child sex crimes to come forward and report to police.
