SNAP’s President Clohessy Could Go To Jail, Appears ‘Shaken and Teary-Eyed’ After Deposition; SNAP Is Reeling

After nearly six hours of direct questioning at a deposition on Monday (1/2/12), David Clohessy, the national president of SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests), says that could end up behind bars.

Clohessy is refusing a lawful order from a judge to turn over documents and correspondences related to the case of an accused Missouri cleric.

In addition to the fact that Clohessy may face jail time, Clohessy’s actions appear to have the entire SNAP organization reeling in panic.

A public appearance today (Tue., 1/3/12) by Clohessy prompted a St. Louis radio station to report:

“The usually confident, sometimes strident, David Clohessy appeared shaken and teary-eyed by what he says is the worst legal problem the group has faced in 23 years.”
