Group Representing Abuse Victims Wants Dupre Defrocked


SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS (WWLP) - A group representing people who claim abuse by members of the catholic clergy delivered a letter to Springfield’s bishop on Tuesday. They say the public deserves to know where Bishop Dupre is and they also want to see him formally removed from the priesthood. Members of Survivor’s Network of those Abused by Priests showed up at the bishop's door on Tuesday to hand him that letter, and show him another they've addressed to the pope. They think it's wrong that Dupre, who's been indicted on charges of molesting 2 boys, is somewhere out in the world, potentially unsupervised, where they say he could abuse more victims.
