Catholic Priest Allegations

Press conferences. Most of the time they are inside some less than ideal office or meeting room, shrouded under the ugliness of flourescent lighting. So from that aspect today's press moment was a nice change. At the same time I felt like the event was very lopsided - having us meet them in front of the diocese office but not actually letting the diocese know we were coming and having nobody from the other side respond to their claims.

and Associates, along with Elsie Boudreau, left, Joelle Casteix stand in front
of the Diocese of Gallup on Tuesday to announce the filing of a civil suit
against a former priest who is alleged to have sexually abused a teenage boy and
given him beer and whiskey in Shiprock in 1980. Casteix is the Southwest
Regional director of SNAP, and Boudreau is the native American outreach director for SNAP.
