Sex Abuse Lawsuit launched against church

,

A lawsuit was filed Monday against the Rancho Bernardo Community Presbyterian Church, alleging that 27-year-old Gregory Starkey sexually abused two teen choir members while he was employed by the church. The families say that when their 15-year-old daughters were sexually abused, instead of addressing the problem, the church looked the other way. The alleged misconduct dates back to 2004. The suit also alleges there was a history of other sexual predators at the church before Starkey, but the church did nothing to train their employees to prevent victims in the future, and even failed to report the earlier allegations to the authorities.
