In June 2012, the jury at Alameda County Superior Court found the Watch Tower Society legally responsible for the abuse suffered by Candace Conti at the hands of now-convicted sex offender Jonathan Kendrick when she was only 9 years old.
The Watchtower Society was held responsible because the elders in Fremont congregation (which young Candace attended) neglected to tell either of her parents that Kendrick had already molested at least two other children in the congregation.
They maintained this secrecy despite removing Kendrick as a ministerial servant for these same offenses. As a result of this, Kendrick remained in "good standing" and was allowed to spend time with Candace and subject her to the most horrendous sexual abuse.

This video explores the reasons why the child abuse policies of Jehovah's Witnesses are unlawful, and fall so drastically short when it comes to protecting children from pedophiles.
