A national organization that supports people abused by clergy will come to Boise next week to talk about Idaho Catholic Bishop Michael Driscoll's handling of cases of sexual misconduct.

David Clohessy, national director of Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. Tuesday near the Roman Catholic Diocese of Boise office at 303 Federal Way. The exact location hasn't been set.

SNAP has criticized Driscoll's handling of priest abuse cases when he was chancellor at the Diocese of Orange in California in the 1970s and 1980s.
