Jane Doe 247 will be present to answer questions, discuss her experience and why she feels it’s important to share her story

What: At a news conference on Monday, attorneys Jeff Anderson and Marc Pearlman will:

Announce a civil lawsuit on behalf of Jane Doe 247 who was sexually abused as a young girl by Fr. Albert Wehby. The lawsuit names the Melkite-Greek Catholic Church and St. John the Baptist in Northlake, IL as defendants. Jane Doe 247 was sexually abused by Wehby at St. John the Baptist in Northlake in the 1990s when she was 14 to 17 years old.

Discuss the lawsuit against the Melkite-Greek Catholic Church which alleges that Wehby’s abuse of Jane Doe 247 resulted from the organization’s negligence and concealment of information about the danger of sexual abuse by Wehby and others in the Melkite-Greek organization. By refusing to publicly release information on abusers, the Melkites continue to put children at risk.

Urge the Melkites to come clean and take responsibility for their actions and failures.
