Support Group Tries to Locate Priest Who Molested 100 Children

August 9, 2013

(KGO) -- A new tactic is being used in hopes of locating a Catholic priest who admitted in 2005 to abusing at least 100 children.

KGO's Lisa Campbell reports that The Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests (SNAP) spent Tuesday protesting outside the priest's last known home. The group hopes its effort will bring information or at least attention to the issue, again.

Group member Melanie Sakoda says over 100 children -- most under 12 -- were abused by Father Rubin Martinez. And his last known address is this house they've just found here in Oakland.

KGO has reached out to the Catholic Church for comment and so far received no response.
