MILWAUKEE — Members of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) gathered at the state office building to submit a letter to Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen.

In the letter, the group requested a meeting to urge him to conduct a full and independent investigation of the victim reports.

“If the archdiocese is admitting to, and that’s why they’re in bankruptcy court, that they committed or likely committed civil fraud, then criminal fraud cannot be far behind,” said Peter Isely, Midwest Director of SNAP.

A SNAP press release states that “a church motion in bankruptcy court will ask Judge Kelley if Archdiocese can conduct abuse inquiry “for” the Attorney General.”
