Jehovah’s Witness elders told abused girl’s parents not to report sex offender

A Bradford man’s sex offence against a little girl was kept quiet for 23 years because elders of the Jehovah’s Witnesses church persuaded her parents not to report him, a court was told.

Robert Lee’s crime in the Forest of Dean was not revealed until the victim had grown up and went to the police, Gloucester Crown Court heard on Friday.

Both the victim’s family and Lee were Jehovah’s Witnesses at that time, said prosecutor Kerry Barker.
