John Jay Investigator Refutes David Clohessy's Letter to the Post

The Post Dispatch printed a letter to the editor on March 15, titled "Archbishop Burke is Off-Base on Abuse".

It seems that the only one who was off-base here was the person who penned the letter, David Clohessy, national director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. Karen Terry, Principal Investigator and James Levine, Administrative Coordinator, respond to Clohessy's incorrect statement in a folloe up letter to the Post.
He (Clohessy) states that the John Jay study only included "credible allegations" of abuse and excluded "3000 priests who have since died and were not investigated." This information is incorrect.
It's certainly nice to know the facts.
