Jail for failing to report her husband

Post by Simon » Sat Jan 26, 2019 3:30 pm

An Idaho woman, Sarah Kester, faces a possible prison term for failing to report her husband’s sex abuse and instead praying and trying to keep him too busy to molest children. She says her religion forbids her from involving the authorities in a personal matter.

She has been charged with felony injury to a child.

Among all the cases of Exclusive Brethren who have sexually abused children, I don’t know of any whose wives have reported them to the authorities. Maybe the wives don’t know that they are legally obliged to report them and can be sent to prison if they don’t. Reporting them to “the priests” is not enough in the eyes of USA law.
