    Calif jury awards $28M in Jehovah's (Witness) sex abuse case

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...&cps=0&lang=en

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) A Northern California jury has awarded $28 million in damages to a woman who said the Jehovah's Witnesses allowed an adult member of a Fremont church to molest her when she was a child in the mid-1990s............

    "This is the largest jury verdict for a single victim in a religious child abuse case in the country," Simons told The Associated Press.

    In her lawsuit, Conti, now 26, said from 1995-1996, 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.......Conti also claimed in her suit that the religion's national leaders formed a policy in 1989 that instructed the religion's elders to keep child sex abuse accusations secret.
