    Court documents show church leaders, parents did not report sexual assault of child

    THORNTON, Colo. — Court documents question whether church leaders in Thornton conspired to protect a fellow pastor accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl. What’s more incredulous is the reaction from the victim’s own parents. A 16-page arrest affidavit paints a disturbing picture of what was going on inside Agape Bible Church at West 88th Avenue and Huron Street after it came to light one of its former pastors was having a sexual relationship with a girl who is now […]
