If you or someone you know has been the victim of sexual abuse at the hands of a representative of the Southern Baptist Convention or its churches, please contact us.
A comprehensive report released by the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) reveals that the religious governing body has been purposely mishandling sexual abuse accusations against church leaders for more than 20 years. The report found that survivors who reported abuse were ignored, disbelieved, or met with inaction.Many of the allegations were not only disregarded but some survivors were even intimidated by leaders while their abusers remained protected. The report shows that even though SBC knew there was a problem, the organization woefully failed to take adequate steps toward preventing further abuse. Sexual abuse cases require a specialized skill set and level of expertise involving applicable Georgia law. At Penn Law, we recognize that these cases have a long-reaching impact that lasts for a victim’s entire life and not just the life-span of the case.
