MILWAUKEE — It’s an unusual alliance: survivors of sex abuse by clergy and Catholic priests. The group is banning together to warn about Febuary 1st deadline for anyone abused in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee to receive justice in court.

“We want to make sure that anybody that’s been harmed in the archdiocese by sexual assault or rape or abuse comes forward and has that opportunity to come forward to the court and time is running out,” said Peter Isely, the Midwest director of SNAP, or Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests. “It may be likely that they’ll never be an opportunity for restitution through the legal system in some way for victims in this archdiocese.”
