Pittsburgh priest charged with child sex abuse
January 28, 2019

Friday, Father Hugh J. Lang was arrested and charged with the alleged sexual abuse of a 10-year-old child in 2001.

SNAP (Survivor's Network of those Abused by Priests) says they "applaud this brave man for contacting law enforcement. We hope his courage inspires others to do the same."

SNAP says they hope anyone who may have suffered, seen or suspected crimes by Fr. Lang, or any others associated with the Diocese of Pittsburgh, will call the police immediately. Victims, witnesses and whistle-blowers can also reach out to SNAP, or groups like ours, for help and support as they report.
