ST. LOUIS (MO)
Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests
Some have attracted zero attention in Sac area
Six spent time at prestigious Carmichael school
Most allegedly assaulted children in other places
But each of them is or was in northern California
At least one, however, reportedly hurt two local kids
“Each day a predator is hidden, kids are at risk,” victim says
SNAP: “Catholic officials should post ALL predators’ names NOW”
Holding signs and childhood photos at a sidewalk news conference, attorneys and clergy sex abuse victims will disclose that twelve publicly ‘outed’ and accused predator priests spent time in Sacramento but remain largely “under the radar.” Most were sued, charged or ousted in other states but escaped scrutiny here.
They will also push Catholic officials to write to school alums urging them to report any abuse at Jesuit High, where at least six of the publicly accused predators worked, including one cleric who is accused of molesting two kids at the Carmichael school.
And they’ll prod Sacramento’s bishop to “stop delaying,”
–post his own ‘accused’ offenders list,
–include ALL alleged predators (nuns, priests, brothers, bishops, seminarians & lay staff), &
–provide photos, whereabouts and full work histories of all the accused.
