Johnson & Groninger PLLC filed a revised complaint Tuesday in its case against the North Carolina and national branches of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons).
In the complaint, filed by a representative of the mother of three children, the plaintiff says that church officials knew that one of their members was a pedophile, yet never reported this fact to law enforcement or to the Department of Social Services, as required by law. The mother also says that Mormon church officials knew that her children were being exposed to this pedophile on a daily basis yet took no steps to warn her of the risk to her children. As soon as she learned about the pedophile’s conduct, the mother took immediate steps to remove him from contact with all of her children but by that time it is believed that three of them had been sexually assaulted.
