Predator Priest Can Stand Trial; SNAP Responds

November 8, 2013

[Daily News]

We are relieved and grateful that Fr. Shook will be brought to justice. For far too long in far too many cases, Catholic officials who commit and conceal child sex crimes succeed in “running out the clock” and escaping responsibility for their reckless, callous and deceitful crimes.

We hope every single person who saw, suspected or suffered Fr. Shook’s crimes – or his church supervisors’ cover ups – will come forward, get help, expose wrongdoing, protect others and start healing. It’s the duty of every adult – especially current and former Catholic Church members and staff – to help ensure that the truth about Fr. Shook’s crimes surfaces.
