    Cool, is there a news link to this?

    Also, let the prosecution (not persecution) begin! These mofos need to be seen for what they are. They need to go down! They ain't got the resources of the catholic church so let's see how long they can pay out before going bankrupt.

    And it looks like there is an experienced attorney for the victim by the name of Irwin Zalkin. This is the Irwin Zalkin that nailed WT and that JW Elder child molester Gonzalo Campos. Looking forward to the updates and good outcome for the victim.

    Thank you Barbara.

    rI'm sorry there are more victims, but I think it's awesome the BotchTower is being dragged down into the real world, where this is not OK, or to be swept under the rug!

    I agree with virgochik. My first thought was how awful that there's yet another victim (who knows how many silent victims there are!), but thank goodness this is someone who is speaking up and telling the world what happened. Watchtower Corp has so very much to answer for. I hope that they are increasingly hit where it really hurts -- their bank accounts.
