<quoted text>
Kendrick was convicted of some form of molestation in 2004 and put on the sex offender registry; her recent lawsuit was filed in 2011.
Per the court documents - oft mentioned, but not once actually cited [1]- officials at the congregation of record became aware of her claims of abuse by Kendrick for the first time in 2009, which means that they had no knowledge of her abuse as it was happening in 1994 & 1995 [2]
A: This was after she alleges she had informed the elders of what was happening to her.
Reply: According to their response to her initial charges, they did not know of her abuse at the hands of Kendrick until 2009.
A: It is my understanding that had the elders taken the proper action, which I feel is correct, is to have had a disciplenary review, or whatever it is called, with Kendrick and Ms. Conti and her parents present to discuss the allegations against him.
Reply: That sounds very nice.
Unfortunately, none of the parties - other than Kendrick and Conti - were aware of the abuse at the time it was occurring, and "the elders" were not aware of her abuse until 2009.
A: Apparently this was not done because if this action would have taken place, the elders would have had an obligation to reveal that Kendrick had been sex offeder.
Reply: Actually, Kendrick was not a "sex offender" at the time he was abusing Ms. Conti, as he wasn't placed on the sex offender registry until the year 2004.
Also, "the elders" were unable to take action of any sort regarding abuse occurring in 1995 and 1996 that they didn't know about until 2009.
A: I am quite sure that "cases" are recorded when a formal complaint is filed.
Reply: Which, in this one, happened on January 1, 2011.
A: Perhaps the elders never told Ms. Conti that she had to file a formal complaint.
Reply: She would have first had to have informed them of the abuse when it was actually occurring, which, according to their statement to the court, did not happen until 2009.
A: This may be the reason why there were allegations rather than stated facts of abuse.
Reply: It's stated very clearly in the court documents that, as far as Ms. Conti was concerned, there wasn't even an allegation against Kendrick until 2009.
It bears pointing out, among other things I've seen so far in these documents, that the alleged victim claims that her parents allowed her to spend time, unsupervised, with Kendrick - a single man - at his home, and, for some reason, on an Amtrak train.
Her parents deny that they EVER allowed her to spend time alone with Kendrick.
I'm getting the impression that the claimant in this case is an extremely twisted individual; this jury had to be BEYOND stupid.
Footnotes & References:
_____
[1] Case #: HG11558324 http://apps.alameda.courts.ca.gov/domainweb/h...
[2] She initially claimed that her abuse occurred in 1996 and 1997; she later amended that claim.
Kendrick had been arrested in 1994 for an unrelated molestation case but was not convicted. Ms. Conti was 9 or 10 when the abuse happened. Did she tell her parents or the elders at that time? Maybe she did, maybe they didn't do anything because they either didn't believe her or decided to keep the abuse from becoming public. Why did the parents deny that they left her alone with Kendrick? Maybe because rhey did not want to be held liable, maybe because they are fairtfully fearful of the "faithful and descreet slave". Why did she wait until she was around 20, 21 to formally file a complaint?
Questions arise every moment. The fact remains that in a civil case the allegations are more than likely to occur. It is not like a criminal case where it has to be proven beyond any reasonable soubt.

According to the court case notes there is a letter from the GB dating back to July 1, 1989, giving the elders direction to keep such info on pedo's secret. Where is this letter? Who has it?

You would think that something like a letter telling the elders to hush about pedos would have been made public from opposers. Where is this July 1, 1989 letter from the gb to the elders that reveals the disgusting hush hush policy?
That letter in total makes more than 18 references to costly lawsuits, legal problems and monetary damages. It contains 8 directives to contact society's legal dept immeditately when issues arise. It also gives repeated separate instructions not to cooperate with law enforcement or honor search warrants or subpoenas.

It was a hush hush policy that threatened elders to remain silent or be sued... which backfired!! They did remain silent and were sued.

and represented the WTS while going from door to door.........and the WTS are at fault for its disgusting HUSH HUSH policy concerning gross actions such as his.
Seems the WTS wants to poke its nose into every aspect of its members lives but when the crap hits the fan it wants to distance itself as much a possible. Should have thought about that before putting such a disgusting policy in place, putting children in danger and creating a safe haven for pedophiles.

Looks like this is the only way their sick policy towards not protecting children of dimwitted members will change.
Either they change it or they will go out of business once and for all

You seriously need to wet both your hands and give yourself several sever slaps across each cheek and WAKE UP in the REAL WORLD.

Yes, the catholic church did that but SO has the WTS. I know its a bitter pill to swallow but you've got no choice.

gareth aka why aka anerian does not read anything. he is afraid to face the truth.. the org is going to be blown up.

in time hopefully many from silent lambs who were abused and no one would listen maybe now they will. yes someone posted it was in the UK and also i think a few other countries

since he is not an american... maybe he does not know about the New York Times. it is published all over this country and in many different countries over the world this paper is read by many people of all faiths (maybe not the jws) but im sure the big men read the article. it is found in stores and in many airports.. why not buy one gareth. or better yet read the court documents.

you can make all the excuses you want now.. your org is busted... oh wait... sorry your not a Jehovah witness so why do you care at all about this case? and your not a woman so why bother???
