Lawsuit: Spring Lake Park church failed to protect children against sex abuse

| May 29, 2011

A 21 year-old Blaine man who says he was sexually abused at the age of 15 by his youth group leader at a Spring Lake Park church is suing its religious leaders.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday in Hennepin County District Court on the man’s behalf by attorneys with Jeff Anderson & Associates, names defendants Emmanuel Christian Center of the Assemblies of God in Spring Lake Park, its former youth group leader, Paul Alan Brandon, and the Minnesota District Council of the Assemblies of God.

The lawsuit claims the plaintiff, referred to in the complaint as John Doe 169, was sexually abused by Brandon in the summer and fall of 2005 when the youth pastor would hold church-sponsored Friday night sleep-overs at his home in Brooklyn Park.
