San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Candace Conti and children that have been Molested. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
On June 17th, 2012 the New York Times reported that a Northern California jury awarded $28 million in damages to Candace Conti who said the Jehovah’s Witnesses allowed an adult member of a Fremont, Calif., church to molest her when she was a child (Superior Court of California, case no. HG11558324). Molestation lawsuits encompass a broad range of circumstances including criminal charges filed on the behalf of a molested child. In the lawsuit, Conti, claims that in 1995 and 1996, when she was 9 and 10 years old and a member of the North Fremont Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, she was repeatedly molested by a fellow congregant, Jonathan Kendrick.
According to the National Children’s Alliance, 187,862 children around the country reported sexual abuse during 2011. Data from the National Alert Registry reveal that most sexual abuse happens between the ages of 7 and 13.
