Statement from SNAP on the Conviction of Fr. Gerald Robinson

Here's a statement from SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests:

"Ohio is a safer state today because of this verdict.  We hot it brings long over due comfort to the loved ones of Sister Margaret Ann and the Toledo community. 

The important lesson here, is that older crimes can be and are being criminally pursued.

More than ever, police and prosecutors have the tools and the will to go after horrific crimes, even when the defendants are seemingly powerful individuals or institutions.

When victims & witnesses stay silent, nothing changes.  When victims and witnesses speak up, at least sometimes a child is protected, the truth is exposed, and justice is done."
