In 2018, a deacon was found guilty of incest, aggravated sexual battery, and child molestation. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison. This was not the first time. He was also sentenced in 2000 for child molestation, put on probation, and entered into the sex abuse registry. Now, the lead pastor, has been arrested for sexual battery and child molestation related to his oldest daughter. He is in jail awaiting an indictment by the Grand Jury. His wife also alleges emotional and physical abuse. She has filed for a restraining order, custody of her daughters, and divorce. Their marriage has been on the rocks for over a decade, and this was known to denominational leaders in Sovereign Grace Churches. Both these men were approved as above reproach when signs clearly indicated otherwise. They should never have been appointed a pastor or deacon. A third case of alleged incest known to Russell and Sarah Tusing, Michelle Sievert, and Dale and Sarah Jackson was covered up. Sovereign Grace Churches is not serious about the qualifications of pastors, elders, overseers, deacons, or deaconesses. For example in the case of C.J. Mahaney. He has covered up the sexual assault of young adults going back to 1980 and the sexual abuse of children going back to 1991. It is all documented in thousands of pages of evidence church members in the denomination have been told not to read. » http://abrentdetwiler.squarespace.com/brentdetwilercom/the-sexual-abuse-of-children-by-leaders-in-sovereign-grace-c.html » https://www.bishop-accountability.org/2024/05/the-sexual-abuse-of-children-by-leaders-in-sovereign-grace-churches-continues/ ▫️School of the Holy Family in Mandan investigated for child abuse and neglect MANDAN, N.D. - The School of the Holy Family in Mandan has been told it needs to change its policies and procedures after North Dakota Health and Human Services indicated child abuse and neglect happened at the school.

The Guardian US investigated claims that the famed entertainer selected girls and women from his audiences and subjected them to sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior. Copperfield’s lawyers say the allegations are ‘false and entirely without foundation’ Copperfield is the subject of an extensive investigation conducted by The Guardian's U.S. edition, published Wednesday. The investigation examines the damning allegations of numerous women who claim the famed illusionist sexually assaulted them or behaved inappropriately during their interactions. In total, 16 women have come forward and accused Copperfield of sexual abuse and lewd conduct, including grooming, groping, drugging and rape. Many of the women are identified in the investigation using pseudonyms to protect their identities. Attorneys for Copperfield have denied the women's allegations and said Copperfield has "never, ever acted inappropriately with anyone, let alone anyone underage." The allegations span four decades – from the late 1980s to 2014. More than half of these women say they were under the age of 18 at the time of the alleged incidents. The Guardian US is examining these allegations as part of a series of stories that has drawn on interviews with more than 100 people and analysis of court and police records obtained through freedom of information act requests. The allegations against Copperfield include claims that he drugged three women before he had sexual relations with them, which they felt they were unable to consent to.Six former Copperfield employees from the early 1990s to mid-2000s claimed in interviews that he frequently asked his assistants to approach attractive young women from the audience and invite them to come up on stage or join him after the show. These ex-employees said Copperfield regularly had the women join him in his limousine, hotel or penthouse afterwards, sometimes several times a week. https://www.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/celebrities/2024/05/15/david-copperfield-sexual-misconduct-investigation/73704365007/ » https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/ng-interactive/2024/may/15/david-copperfield-allegations ▫️Former Fort Carson soldier sentenced to 5 years probation for possession of child sexual abuse material A former Fort Carson soldier was sentenced to five years of sex-offender intensive supervised probation on Thursday.
