Archdiocese of Chicago to Pay $2.3 Million Settlement, But Refutes SNAP Statements

The Archdiocese of Chicago has agreed to pay $2.3 million to settle a case in which a former priest abused a young man known only as “John Doe.”  The victim, now in his early 20s, was a teenager and pre-teen at the time the abuse occurred.

Following the court settlement, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) held a press conference on November 26.  Barbara Blaine, president of SNAP, leveled several charges against the Archdiocese.

The Archdiocese of Chicago has now responded to Blaine’s charges, correcting several errors which were made during the press conference.

I’ve reported full details about the settlement, about SNAP’s charges, and about the Archdiocese’s thorough response on the “Kresta in the Afternoon” blog.  Be sure to check it out here!
