Thanks so much for your help everyone!
My own personal experience with a child molester, which i mentioned in my post, didn't involve a JW. And because child abuse laws have changed substantially since he was prosecuted years ago, I'm not sure how to go about this! The person who does --my friend's daughter, just recently started attending meetings again and has since decided to keep quiet. No surprise there, right? GRRRR!!!
Here's more info.: his family moved to El Dorado County, Calif. 20-25 years ago and his parents and other family members still live there.
