Lawyer Tim Kosnoff recently remarked that he thought that churches were largely harmless. That was until he uncovered a system of cover-ups, and he witnessed first hand the lengths that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will go to deny the rights of sexual abuse victims to seek justice.
Tom and Juliette and their children were an ordinary family in Michael Jensen’s West Virginia Mormon community when they were asked to provide a home for him.
What they didn’t know was that they were harbouring a paedophile with prior convictions and numerous criminal allegations of sexual assault and abuse against him. What surprised and horrified them was that their church leaders had known of his abuses for years and they said nothing.
With Tim Kosnoff at their side, they took the LDS Church on in court and what they experienced was shocking and life-changing.
