A news conference is planned for Tuesday morning after several Chaminade graduates claim they were verbally and sexually abused at the College prep school.  The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, or SNAP, is holding the news conference at 11 a.m. in the Central West End.

According to SNAP, in January, local Catholic officials sent letters for hundreds of Chaminade graduates admitting that two former Chaminade teachers had been accused of sex crimes.  Now victims are blasting church officials for not disclosing the allegations sooner.
