Leaked documents suggest Jehovah’s Witnesses let accused child rapist continue as church leader for years
Leaked documents have raised questions about how the Jehovah’s Witnesses dealt with child sex abuse allegations against a local church leader.
The trove of documents, released on Tuesday by the new whistleblower group FaithLeaks, show the Warwick, New York-based church hierarchy’s internal handling of explosive allegations.
Unredacted versions of the 69 pages of documents were viewed in advance and corroborated by Gizmodo.
In 1999, two adult women came forward to leaders in a Brimfield, Massachusetts congregation, the documents show.
