Jehovah’s Witnesses & Sexual Abuse

The Jehovah’s Witnesses are an insular religious community. Because of this, Jehovah’s Witnesses are often hostile to allegations of child abuse within their ranks. The Jehovah’s Witnesses have shamed victims who come forward and have a practice of keeping abuse allegations secret. Jehovah’s Witnesses often put the organization’s reputation before the well-being of child sexual abuse victims.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses adhere to something they call the “two-witness” rule, which means the organization will not act against a child abuser unless there are two people who report the abuse. This means that if a child victim is sexually abused, and the abuse is not witnessed by another Jehovah’s Witness, the organization will not punish the sexual abuser.

Client Reviews

Ben and Nate are great guys. They walked me through the whole process, from beginning til the end. The receptionist and very nice. Answer all my questions and concerns. I will refer them to anyone. Their not like other lawyers that talk around the topic. They tell you just how it is or how they believe it will be. Thank you guys so much.

Ben and Nate took their time in handling my case with compassion and care. I never had to wonder what was going on. They always made sure to include me in each and every decision that needed to be made before they were made. Their entire staff was always very polite and knowledgeable. I cannot say enough kind words about Andreozzi + Foote; they are simply the best!

One of the best personal injury lawyers in the country. Great experience. Really genuine people at Andreozzi and Associates.

B. E.

Handled our case SO well even though it took a long time to settle, and STILL helps us with paperwork related to the settlement account every now and then. They were honest with us from the get-go, worked REALLY hard on our behalf, and always kept in touch with us about what was going on. So pleased.

When you and your child are victims of a horrid crime it’s hard to understand why things are the way they are. Information and answers are what you want, but unfortunately the system doesn’t offer that. Nathaniel has fielded and patiently listened to a broken mother wanting nothing more than for someone to help her understand why she has no answers, and through these phone calls Nathaniel has been very informative, honest and upfront. I would recommend Nathaniel and this firm to anyone who is seeking answers, help and professionalism in a firm when going through such difficult times.
