Candace Conti Awarded $28M In Jehovah's Witness Abuse Case

 

OAKLAND, Calif. -- 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.

Alameda County jurors awarded $7 million in compensatory damages on Wednesday and another $21 million in punitive damages on Thursday to Candace Conti, her attorney, Rick Simons said.

 

"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.

The Associated Press does not normally name victims of child sexual abuse but Conti has identified herself publicly to encourage other victims of sexual abuse to come forward, Simons said.

"Nothing can bring back my childhood," Conti told the Oakland Tribune. "But through this (verdict) and through, hopefully, a change in their policy, we can make something good come out of it."

 

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 **noallow** abuse accusations secret. Congregation elders followed that policy when Kendrick was convicted in 1994 of misdemeanor child molestation in Alameda County, according to Simons.

Kendrick was never criminally charged in the case involving Conti, but besides the 1994 conviction, he was later convicted in 2004 of lewd or lascivious acts with a child, records show.

Kendrick, 58, now lives in Oakley, Calif., according to California's **noallow** offender registry. A message left with a person answering the phone at his home was not immediately returned.

 

Kendrick was ordered to pay 60 percent of the judgment, but Simons said there would be no attempt to collect any money from Kendrick, in part, because he would not be able to pay the judgment. The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York – the organization overseeing the Jehovah's Witnesses _would be responsible for 40 percent, Simons said.

Jim McCabe, an attorney for the congregation, said he planned to appeal the jury's decision.

"The Jehovah's Witnesses hate child abuse and believe it's a plague on humanity," McCabe told the Tribune. "Jonathan Kendrick was not a leader or a pastor, he was just a rank-and-file member. This is a tragic case where a member of a religious group has brought liability on the group for actions he alone may have taken."

psicologo00,

 

 

Estás pretendiendo desinformar a la platea.

 

En primer lugar: La Sociedad apeló el fallo por considerarlo injusto.

 

En segundo lugar: el acusado, Jonathan Kendrick, tendrá que pagar el 60% del total, unos $16.6 millones. El resto la Sociedad Watchtower.


En tercer lugar: El abogado de la Sociedad Watchtower, Jim McCabe, dijo que el acusado, Kendrick, no es un dirigente ni pastor o representante de los Testigos de Jehová, sino un miembro de bajo rango, y que el abuso sexual es repudiado por la organización.

Kendrick, era amigo de la familia de la mujer abusada y fue en ese marco donde se dieron el o los abusos sexuales.

Debes saber que los niños testigos de Jehová entran y salen de las reuniones cristianas con sus padres. No tienen escuelas dominicales, ni asilos, ni orfanatos, ni internados, escuelas, tampoco actividades extracurriculares.

De seguro ni a ti ni a tu familia la condenarían por los delitos que cometiera uno de ellos.

Este fallo hizo lo mismo, condenó a toda una congregación por lo hechos que solo pudo decidir y cometer el acusado.

Distinta es la situación del clero pederasta católico, que abusa de niños en instituciones católicas y bajo su autoridad como sacerdote.


 

 

¿Permitirías que un cura acercara la cabeza de tus hijos, sobrinos y nietos a sus genitales?

Re: CANDACE CONTI GANA DEMANDA CONTRA LA WATCHTOWER

Por supuesto que los tejotos apelaran a la corte para no pagar.

 

Pero hay demasiadas pruebas, no se saldran con la suya.

 

Esta secta tiene un historial de pederastia y miles de casos en las cortes de los Estados Unidos de Norteamerica.

 

Desgraciadamente, en America latina no es igual.

 

En la Gran Bretaña y otras partes de Europa, tambien hay varios casos de pederastia en contra de ellos.

[ Editado ]

BUENISIMA EXPLICACION LEGAL PARA QUIEN ENTIENDE INGLES.  PUNTO POR PUNTO SE EXPLICA COMO LA SOCIEDAD WATCHTOWER HA DELINQUIDO POR VARIOS AÑOS PROTEGIENDO A MIEMBROS DE LA SECTA CUANDO COMETEN ABUSOS SEXUALES, PORQUE SE LO DEJAN TODO A 'JEHOVA' PARA QUE HAGA JUSTICIA.

 

POR VARIOS AÑOS HAN ENCUBIERTO A SUS PEDERASTAS Y LOS ABUSOS SEXUALES HAN SIDO IGNORADOS.

 

DESPUES DE ESTE VEREDICTO, LA SOCIEDAD WATCHTOWER HA QUEDADO AL DESCUB IERTO!

The Watchtower Punished: Society loses legal battle over child abuse case

An Alameda jury has found Jehovah’s Witnesses legally responsible for the sexual abuse of a minor

 

 

Dramatic news is emerging that the Watch Tower Society has lost its first lawsuit since the Olin Moyle libel case of 1940. For more than 70 years, the Watch Tower Society has prided itself on its clean legal record, although this has now collapsed in dramatic fashion after a jury at the Alameda County Superior Court found Jehovah’s Witnesses legally responsible for the sexual abuse of Candace Conti, who suffered repeated molestation at the hands of a member of her congregation when only nine years old.

 

Candace Conti, now 26 and living in Stockton, took the brave decision to pursue legal action against the Society over her abuse as a child after repeated attempts to persuade her congregation to change its policies fell on deaf ears. During the 1990s, when she was a child, her local elders at North Fremont congregation knew that her molester, Jonathan Kendrick, had sexually abused other young girls in the congregation, but concealed this information from her parents.

Re: CANDACE CONTI GANA DEMANDA CONTRA LA WATCHTOWER

In showing such shocking negligence, a jury has found that the Fremont elders were acting under the Watch Tower Society’s instructions. The resulting lack of intervention allowed Kendrick to use his **noallow** of trust in the congregation to gain control of his young victim during such activities as door-to-door work. According to Candace, her abuser “was a member of our congregation, and he became a friend of our family. It was a really troubling time for my parents, and I think he took advantage of that.”

 

Though the abuse happened many years ago, Candace has been left emotionally scarred by the “physical, mental and emotional injuries” inflicted over a two-year period between 1994 and 1996.

 

The current policies of Jehovah’s Witnesses prevent elders from acknowledging cases of child abuse if the perpetrator denies the allegations, and if no witnesses were involved. Elders are also instructed to contact their branch office for guidance as soon as they learn of any accusation of abuse, rather than contacting the authorities. In this case, it appears Kendrick had molested at least two young girls in his congregation prior to abusing Candace. In both cases, the elders failed to report these incidents to the authorities, or warn parents in the congregation.

Re: CANDACE CONTI GANA DEMANDA CONTRA LA WATCHTOWER

After these two previous cases were brought to their attention, the Fremont elders, evidently acting under instructions from their branch office, stripped Kendrick of his **noallow** as a ministerial servant, but (astonishingly) allowed him to remain in “good standing” within the congregation, telling nobody of his actions. Thanks to the “two witness” policy and/or instructions from the branch office, this brother’s abusive tendencies were concealed from young Candace’s parents, with devastating results.

 

The Watch Tower Society has therefore been held to account for the abuse suffered by Candace, and has been ordered to pay millions of dollars both in compensation and punitive damages. Compensatory damages of $7 million have been awarded, of which the Society must pay 40%. A further $21 million is due to be paid by the Society in punitive damages. On its official website, the Society has announced it will appeal this decision. It is feared that such an appeal will potentially drag the case out over a considerable period.

 

In a remarkable twist, on June 20th Judge Robert D. McGuinnes ruled that the real estate assets of the Watch Tower Society were to be effectively frozen pending the outcome of the Society’s appeal against the judgment. This would mean that, for a considerable period, the Watch Tower Society would be powerless to buy, sell or exchange property without first seeking the permission of the court in Alameda. It is estimated that the total value of the Watch Tower Society’s remaining Brooklyn property portfolio alone is a staggering 1 Billion dollars. However, at the time of writing, it appears the Society may well purchase a bond to guarantee the monies required for payment of damages as a means of circumventing the need for a freeze on assets.
