RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - A group of protesters from the Virginia Survivors Network for those Abused by Priests (SNAP) were in front of the Richmond Catholic Diocese asking for recognition of a man accused of sexually abusing more than 80 children.

Stephen Baker worked in Norfolk in the 1970s, and was accused of molesting children in three other states. He committed suicide in January, after settling 11 of the cases brought against him.

Virginia SNAP is looking for the church to admit if they were aware of any cases in Virginia when Baker was in Norfolk -- and to reach out and ask for victims to come forward.
