Rape victim’s parents suing church

| June 5, 2011

TAYLOR, Texas (KXAN) – The parents of a 14-year-old rape victim have filed suit against a Taylor church, alleging the pastor and other church members opened the door for the crime to happen.

Jeremy James, 29, a musical minister at the Mount Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, was convicted in April for aggravated sexual assault of the girl who was a member of the church choir.

He is now facing 15 years in prison, but the girl’s family think the church should also be held accountable.

“The church has some liabilities for allowing him to take girls over and have sleepovers,” said the family’s attorney, Kevin Madison.

The rape occurred on July 9 when the victim was invited over to James’ home for a sleepover with other girls from the church, including James’ two daughters.
