(Tulsa, Ok)--Critical of the Tulsa Roman Catholic Diocese for "dragging its feet", the national director of SNAP comes to town. SNAP stands for Survivors Network of those Abused By Priests. David Clohessy was here to offer support to Paul Webber. The former Tulsan claims he was sexually molested by a priest over 30 years ago while a student at St. Mary's School.

Webber's case is linked to an abuse case several years ago against Rev. Paul Eichoff. The clergyman was cleared of those accusations. Since then he has been assigned to St. Cecilia Church in Claremore. Webber claims he recalled the abuse with the help of recent therapy. He shared his story with the District Attorney and the Diocese. That was months ago and he says there has been no action. Both Webber and Clohessy want the Bishop to at least suspend Father Eichoff from his position.
