I met an EX JE that was DA'ed for telling a sister that the man she was dating was convicted in Sacramento CA for child molestation about ten years’s prior.
She use to live in the same city and had cut the article out of the paper because this man was a JW. His first wife divorced him & he went to prison. When he got out he moved to a smaller town & got reinstated.
When this sister move into the same congregations territory she was shocked to see him sitting there with this single mom & her two young daughters. She found out that they were getting married.
At the next meeting she followed that sister into the restroom. She told her that she was very sorry, but that out of concern for her and the girls she thought that she had to give her this article to read.
That sister cornered the elders and asked them why they did not warn her. The sister that gave her the article was disfellowshipped for gossiping.
She protected those two girls. Their mom was grateful. The sister telling me this said that the mom quit going to the meeting because of the elders not warning her and because the only person that warned her was disfellowshipped for doing so.
