Statement by Lou Beres


While I am grieved by the false allegations of my nephew, Richard Galat, I am attempting to determine the source of each claim. Once I learn who has made an allegation I will pursue the Biblical response and do all within my power to reconcile with that person. It is inappropriate to comment on allegations by unnamed people. Out of respect for all concerned, I must say that I will work to resolve all issues.

I deny any criminal conduct.

With respect to Richard Galat, I was contacted by his sister this morning and she apologized for his behavior. She has told me that she has contacted the media to inform them of her having close ties with my family. Her brother, Richard, has suffered for years from conditions that prevent him from being responsible in his speech and actions.
