Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests
January 31, 2019
All were left off Hartford’s new list of those “credibly accused”
Two admitted abuse, one was convicted & one is a nun
Victims want Catholic officials to “come fully clean now”
Group also urges CT to totally eliminate SOLs for child sex abuse
Holding signs and childhood photos at a sidewalk news conference, clergy sex abuse victims and their supporters will disclose the names and histories of six publicly accused child molesters, including one woman, who worked in the Hartford Catholic Archdiocese but were left off a just-posted list of those “credibly accused.” The group found six other “overlooked” publicly accused priests and brothers when the list was first released last week.
They will also call on Connecticut’s top Church officials to
–include the six new names on the Archdiocese’s “credibly accused” list,
–give more details about each abuser, especially their photos, current whereabouts and full work histories, and
–urge CT legislators to totally remove the criminal and civil statutes of limitations for child sexual abuse and open a permanent civil window.
