Crimes, Betrayals, and Dangerous Hypocrisy

For the safety, upbringing, education, and well-being of children and to protect unsuspecting and trusting consumers, it is our responsibility to warn consumers about the serious crimes, betrayals, and dangerous hypocrisy committed by the administrators at Worthington Christian Schools (WCS) and Grace Brethren Church (GBC) of Columbus, Ohio along with their Schottenstein, Zox, and Dunn (SZD) (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney, Daniel R. Swetnam, against we parents and our children.

Preface

As reported by the Columbus Dispatch newspaper and others beginning on October 17, 2007, these administrators along with their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney got caught while deliberately putting thousands of students at “risk” (Jim Augspurger's own recorded word) with several repeat child molesters lead into temptation to molest again, while deceiving and defrauding we parents about it, while the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney conspired to cover up their crimes: a 10-year Conspiracy of Criminal Negligence, Deception, Fraud, and Cover-Ups against we parents and the students:

These WCS/GBC administrators have clearly demonstrated that they practice and teach-by-example dangerous hypocrisy while betraying their paying customers, the students, volunteers, supporting businesses, and fellow man.

WARNING: These WCS/GBC administrators, excluding Bill Williams, remain in power at WCS/GBC (and ACSI) and remain as a serious threat to unsuspecting consumers and children and remain as terrible examples to all past, present, and future students on how to treat your business customers and your fellow man. Note too that some WCS teachers, staff, and parents took part in those serious offenses against our children and we parents.

After taking Matthew 18.6 seriously and then proclaiming Mark 6.11, it is the responsibility of all of us to warn others by "doing for others as we would like them to do for us" by providing others with the publicly available information with indisputable and overwhelming evidence about the serious offenses committed against the consumers by those WCS/GBC administrators as well as some WCS teachers, staff, and parents who took part in those crimes and who remain behind at WCS/GBC.

Please join us in standing up for the dignity of the students who were deliberately put at risk by the WCS/GBC administrators and for the dignity of God who never ever would approve of such a thing as the WCS/GBC administrators believe before God is the right thing to do.
Please do so by providing this Internet Web Site address to all who have a right to the crucial information provided below. You may also post and hand out the Microsoft Word document PostHandOut.doc.

Sincerely,
Betrayed Parents

And that this man person does NOT "Stand For Something" as he demonstrates that "Cowardice is Contagious"

Other Cases

Another case of serious crimes committed by religious institutions (other than WCS and GBC harboring child molesters) is as revealed in the CNN Documentary “What The Pope Knew.”. That documentary is available on Youtube.com.

A case of government worker incompetence and corruption and the use and abuse of the court system is exposed in the Burzynski documentary at BurzynskiMovie.com. That excellent documentary is distributed to the public by Whole Foods and other fine companies. The documentary reveals that individuals at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are guilty of serious crimes while FDA personnel worked (and spent $60 Million) in an effort to stifle Mr. Burzynski and to have him put in jail (as the WCS/GBC attorney and the SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) Law Firm did to a parent for simply asking two questions, the first as suggested by the Supreme Court of Ohio).


WCS/GBC
CRIMES, BETRAYALS, DANGEROUS HYPOCRISY

As reported by the Columbus Dispatch newspaper and others with indisputable and overwhelming evidence, the administrators at WCS and GBC along with their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney Daniel R. Swetnam got caught while continuously and deliberately putting thousands of WCS students at “risk” (Jim Augspurger's own recorded word) with several known repeat child molesters, while deceiving and defrauding we parents about it, while the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney worked and conspired to cover up their crimes: a 10-year Conspiracy of Criminal Negligence, Deception, Fraud, and Cover-Ups. The repeat child molesters were employed at WCS as Teachers and Coaches as well as Youth Directors for elementary-age children.

The individuals identified below understood that the repeat child molesters would be lead into temptation to molest the children for which the child molesters were given authority over and were entrusted with. These WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney also clearly understood that if we parents learned that our children were being taught and coached by known repeat child molesters, we would have immediately removed our sons and daughters from the private "Christian" school and stopped paying money to that school (approximately $60,000 per student for pre-school to grade 12) as well as the affiliated church.

Claims to have been completely ignorant about the known repeat child
molesters even though the other administrators knew as well as
some teachers, staff, parents, and even some students.
If not aware, was grossly incompetent.

The danger, deception, fraud, cover-ups, and conspiracy began over 10 years earlier in 1996 when Dwayne Smith, son of the then WCS Superintendent Taylor Smith (who is now Vice President of Executive Support at Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI)), got caught repeatedly molesting a student. The administrators were also aware from at least 2002 that Jason Crary had repeatedly molested a student of his in Wisconsin. They were also aware for many years that the Superintendent Bill Williams had also been accused several times of child molestation as well as sexual harassment.

Dwayne Smith repeatedly molested a 13-year-old student of his in 1996 and the Franklin County Children Services (FCCS) findings were that Smith’s "sexual misconduct was substantiated". The Worthington Chief of Police wrote that “The Worthington Division of Police was not contacted by Children Services nor did they respond to us about the incident when we sent a letter asking for additional information.”. The WCS administrators rehired Smith, an admitted and confirmed (by FCCS) repeat child molester, in 1999. Several years after Smith’s supposed “confession, counseling, forgiveness, accountability, and eventually restoration”, Smith blamed his 13-year-old victim for those molestations by saying: “She had been coming on to me for a while”.
The WCS/GBC administrators deliberately kept these crucial facts from the parents.

Jason Crary repeatedly molested a 16-year-old student of his in the late 1990’s while teaching and coaching at Heritage Christian Schools (HCS) in Wisconsin. The Superintendent of HCS called and warned the WCS/GBC administrators about Crary in 2002. Less than one week after the WCS/GBC administrators got caught on October 17, 2007 in regard to Smith, Crary was arrested at WCS High School on October 23, 2007 and was later convicted and went to prison for those child molestations. It was learned that Crary had repeatedly molested his victim while occasionally drugging her with Aleve and red wine.

Bill Williams, the WCS Superintendent, had also been accused several times of molesting at least one student and he claims that it was merely an “inappropriate emotional attachment” with the student.

Information about sexual misconduct by other WCS teachers and GBC staff exists but that information has not been made public yet and, therefore, will not be presented here to prevent any possible claims of libel.

It must be made clear that we parents had no clue that WCS was employing repeat child molesters to teach and coach our children. The statement below was secretly recorded in March 2006 (over a year and a half before the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney got caught) as several of the administrators acknowledged between one another that there was indeed a “risk” to the students by the admitted and confirmed (by FCCS) repeat child molester Dwayne Smith. Note too that the administrators had also been warned about the repeat child molester Jason Crary and they were also aware of the child molestation issues with Bill Williams when this statement was made as reported in the Columbus Dispatch newspaper of Wednesday, October 17, 2007:

"We understand that if something happens between Dwayne and a student, we will be big-time liable,"
executive pastor Jim Augspurger said on the recording.
"That's a risk we take. I think before God we did the right thing and it may not be the worldly, may not even be the most prudent thing, but it is something we have done,"
he said.
"We've wiped the slate clean. I understand the situation it puts us in."

We parents never knew that WCS was employing child molesters. We only learned these facts about Dwayne Smith when the WCS/GBC administrators got caught by the Columbus Dispatch newspaper as reported on October 17, 2007; we only learned these facts about Jason Crary when he got arrested at the school a few days later; and we only learned these facts about Bill Williams after rumors surfaced and were confirmed a few days after that.

The WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney clearly understood that if we parents learned that our children were being taught and coached by repeat child molesters, we would have immediately removed our sons and daughters from the school and stopped paying money to WCS (approximately $60,000 per student for pre-school to grade 12) as well as GBC. These men worked and conspired to cover-up their crimes for over 10 years while their repeat child molesters continued to be lead into temptation to molest again while the consumers were being deceived and defrauded about it. Thus, these men endangered, deceived, and defrauded literally thousands of unsuspecting consumers over the years.

Despite the overwhelming evidence against the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney, WCS misappropriated more of the money intended to educate the students by paying for a bogus investigation that foolishly states that:

“WCS has never attempted to cover up any improper acts”.
However, after that bogus report came out, one of those who attended the cover-up meetings stated the following about the fact that GBC and WCS was covering up the fact that one of the child molesters had repeatedly molested a 13-year-old student against her will and did not merely have an adulterous affair with a consenting adult:
"I was a Lead Pastor here for eight years and a Director Of Junior High Youth Ministries in the past. This is a Watergate. The church covered it up. I was in the meetings. I've known all these years that it was a student. And I was told to get back to wiping noses and not to let it out."

The criminal offenses committed by the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney have severely harmed the students’ Christian upbringing and education as well as the reputation and psychological well-being of the students and parents as well as those of us who supported the school and church by volunteering our time, donating our money, and sponsoring by businesses.

EXAMPLES OF EVIDENCE FOR EACH CRIME COMMITTED

The WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney Daniel R. Swetnam are hereafter collectively referred to as “the defendants”. A single example of the publicly available evidence that proves each of the crimes, as well as Misappropriation of money (and possible Obstruction Of Justice), was indeed committed by the defendants follows.
Refer to the LEGAL DEFINITIONS for the legal definition for each of these crimes.

CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE

The defendants are guilty of willful Criminal Negligence. The statement below was secretly recorded in March 2006 (over a year and a half before the defendants got caught) as several of the defendants acknowledged between one another that there was indeed a “risk” to the students by the admitted and confirmed (by FCCS) repeat child molester Dwayne Smith. Note too that the defendants had also been warned about the repeat child molester Jason Crary and they were also aware of the child molestation issues with Bill Williams when this statement was made as reported in the Columbus Dispatch newspaper of Wednesday, October 17, 2007:

"We understand that if something happens between Dwayne and a student, we will be big-time liable,"
executive pastor Jim Augspurger said on the recording.
"That's a risk we take. I think before God we did the right thing and it may not be the worldly, may not even be the most prudent thing, but it is something we have done,"
he said.
"We've wiped the slate clean. I understand the situation it puts us in."

DECEPTION

Occurred during the Criminal Negligence described above. The defendants are guilty of willfully breaking and ignoring laws, rules, and regulations (e.g. Child Molesters not allowed within 1,000' of a school) while deceiving the consumers into believing that the defendants were abiding by the law and practicing and teaching "Christian" values of "safety, honesty, truth, integrity, and sincerity". However, WCS in fact was practicing and teaching-by-example "danger, deception, fraud, cover-ups, and conspiracy" as well as extreme hypocrisy. Rules ignored include those of the current WCS Child Protection Plan (CPP) which was adopted by the defendants merely in an attempt to avoid being discovered and held accountable after the defendants got caught and realized that they might lose their jobs and be held accountable for their criminal offenses against and resulting harms to the consumers.

FRAUD

Occurred during the Criminal Negligence and Deception described above. The defendants are guilty of willful Fraud and using "Deceptive Sales Practices" by making claims such as:

"His last background check, July 31, 2006 was spotless"
while they knew the man was an admitted and confirmed (by FCCS) repeat child molester who blamed his victim. The defendants intentionally misrepresented the truth as they withheld crucial information from the consumers. The consumers relied upon the claims made by the defendants and the defendants benefited monetarily from the consumers due to those fraudulent claims. The defendants clearly and fully understood that if the consumers had known that the students were being taught and coached by repeat child molesters, the consumers would have immediately removed the students from the school and stopped paying money ($60,000 per student) to the school as well as the church.

COVER-UP

Occurred during the Criminal Negligence, Deception, and Fraud described above. The defendants are guilty of working to Cover-Up these offenses against the consumers while protecting their repeat child molesters and themselves from being caught as indicated in the audio recording, CoverUp.mp3, which was made during the WCS Parents meeting on February 28, 2008, when Brian Penn stated the following about the fact that the WCS/GBC administrators were covering up the fact that one of the child molesters had repeatedly molested a 13-year-old student against her will and did not merely have an adulterous affair with a consenting adult:

"I was a Lead Pastor here for eight years and a Director Of Junior High Youth Ministries in the past. This is a Watergate. The church covered it up. I was in the meetings. I've known all these years that it was a student. And I was told to get back to wiping noses and not to let it out."

CONSPIRACY

Occurred during the Criminal Negligence, Deception, Fraud, and Cover-Up described above. The defendants agreed with one another that they would prevent the parents from learning about the “risk” (the defendants’ own word) to the students as the defendants continued to deceive and defraud the parents and endanger the students for many years with repeat child molesters. The defendants understood that those repeat child molesters would surely be tempted to molest again while being surrounded by a huge supply of potential and completely trusting victims which those child molesters were given authority over.

MISAPPROPRIATION

The defendants are guilty of Misappropriation of money, which was intended for educating the students, for investigations that were merely an attempt to avoid being discovered and held accountable after they got caught and realized that they might lose their jobs after committing these offenses against and harming the consumers.

POSSIBLE OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE

The crimes above were clearly committed. However, based on statements from law enforcement and other agencies, it appears that the crime of Obstruction Of Justice might also apply in this case as well.

Note the statement below from Sergeant John W. Slaughter of the Criminal Investigations Unit of the Worthington Division of Police in regard to this matter:

“Additionally, if at the time you felt deceived or defrauded, you could have simply removed your child from the school.”

Evidently, someone deliberately mislead Mr. Slaughter or else this “Investigator” does not understand that we were clearly being “deceived” and we did not know it (refer to the appendix for the definition of the word "Deception"), otherwise, as any decent parent would have done, we would have immediately removed our child from the school and stopped paying money to WCS but we were obviously being “defrauded” (refer to the appendix for the definition of the word "Fraud").

Mr. Slaughter had been provided all of the facts currently available including the audio recording made during the WCS Parents meeting on February 28, 2008 when Brian Penn stated the following in regard to one of the child molesters repeatedly molesting an eighth grade student:

"I was a Lead Pastor here for eight years and a Director Of Junior High Youth Ministries in the past. This is a Watergate. The church covered it up. I was in the meetings. I've known all these years that it was a student. And I was told to get back to wiping noses and not to let it out."

It must be made clear that we parents had no idea that Dwayne Smith nor Jason Crary (nor Bill Williams who now claims to merely having an “inappropriate emotional attachment” with a student who accused him several times of child molestation) had repeatedly molested students. We parents only learned about these facts after the defendants got caught deliberately endangering our children and deceiving and defrauding us about it while conspiring to cover it up for over 10 years.

Note the statements below by WCS/GBC attorney Daniel R. Swetnam in the Columbus Dispatch of Wednesday, October 17, 2007 3:28 AM in regard to the child molester who repeatedly molested a 13-year-old student against her will and later blamed her for it by stating “She had been coming on to me for a while”:

"We think Dwayne is a great teacher, a great coach. He's an outstanding person to have here,"
said the school's attorney, Daniel R. Swetnam.
"We didn't want to arbitrarily throw someone under the bus."
And:
"There's no dispute that Dwayne acknowledged and confessed his sins,"
Swetnam said.
"We recognize that all of us are sinners. We're not going to just throw him or anyone else overboard."

There is indeed a “dispute” in that this “confession” is when the “Conspiracy to Deceive” by GBC began back in 1996. It is important to understand that only a very small percentage of WCS parents attend(ed) that particular church and the few who did attend that church and were present during that “confession” have stated that they were mislead into believing that the “confession” was in regard to an adulterous affair with a consenting adult and NOT in regard to repeatedly molesting a 13-year-old student for which Smith later blamed her for it after his supposed “confession, counseling, forgiveness, accountability, and eventually restoration”.

Note the information below from Judi Welsh as given in the Columbus Dispatch of Wednesday, October 17, 2007 3:28 AM in regard to that confession that Swetnam claims there is "no dispute" over:

Welsh remembered the day in 1996 when Smith asked the Grace Brethren congregation for forgiveness but did not explain what he had done.

As stated by Greg Rank in the Columbus Dispatch of Monday, October 22, 2007 3:37 AM:

"My children are students at WCS and I am very grateful that you have brought this to our attention,"
parent Greg Rank wrote in an e-mail to The Dispatch.
"My wife and I had no idea about this situation."

The defendants clearly understand that this case is not at all about arbitrarily throwing sinners under the bus or overboard. This case is about the defendants deliberately throwing the students under the bus and then throwing the parents overboard.

ISSUES TO ADDRESS

Note that the administrators responsible for these serious crimes remain in control at WCS/GBC and remain as a serious threat to the remaining students and naive parents and to all unsuspecting consumers and supporters. This leads all past, present, and future students to believe that such crimes and betrayals against their fellow man and business customers are perfectly acceptable. This is completely unacceptable and these men must be held accountable to address each of the following:

  1. Over ten years of willful Conspiracy by the defendants.
  2. Over eight years of willful and deliberate Criminal Negligence by the defendants.
  3. Over ten years of willful Deception by the defendants.
  4. Over eight years of willful Fraud by the defendants.
  5. Over ten years of willful Cover-Ups by the defendants.
  6. Misappropriation of the parent’s money by the defendants that was intended to educate the students.
  7. Discover the truth in regard to the extent of the above crimes.
  8. Discover other crimes that have been or currently are being committed by the defendants.
  9. Discover other child molesters being protected by the defendants.
  10. Discover other children who may have been molested by Dwayne Smith so those children can be provided with assistance.
  11. Discover other children who may have been molested by Jason Crary so those children can be provided with assistance.
  12. Discover facts about several child molestation accusations against Bill Williams that he claims were merely an “inappropriate emotional attachment”.
  13. Discover other children who may have been molested by Bill Williams so those children can be provided with assistance.
  14. Discover what Troy McIntosh, Assistant Superintendent and Elementary School Principal, knew about these crimes and the extent of his gross incompetence by not being aware of what the other defendants and some teachers, staff, parents, and students knew to be true.
  15. Discover any Obstruction Of Justice.
  16. Assure the students that crime does NOT pay and that you WILL be held accountable for your crimes.
  17. Assure the students that the defendants are NOT examples of “Godly men”, decent “Christians”, or ethical businessmen.
  18. Assure the students that you do NOT cower down to those who deliberately put your children at “risk”.
  19. Assure the students that you do NOT cower down to those who deceive and defraud you.
  20. Assure the students that we are to flee from temptation and to help lead others from their temptations.
  21. Assure the students that we are NOT to lead others into temptation as the defendants do by deliberately putting repeat child molesters into direct contact with a huge supply of potential and trusting victims which those child molesters were given authority over.
  22. Assure the students that God, United States laws, and reasonable people do NOT approve of such danger, deception, fraud, cover-ups, conspiracy, hypocrisy, or any other form of betrayal as committed by these defendants.
  23. Assure the students that this is NOT the way you treat your business customers or your fellow man.
  24. Assure the students that the Bible is the very best source for rules to live by and is not just to be preached about.
  25. Encourage the students to practice safety and not danger as practiced and taught by example by the defendants.
  26. Encourage the students to practice honesty and not deception as practiced and taught by example by the defendants.
  27. Encourage the students to practice truth and not fraud as practiced and taught by example by the defendants.
  28. Encourage the students to practice integrity and not cover-ups as practiced and taught by example by the defendants.
  29. Encourage the students to practice sincerity and not conspiracy as practiced and taught by example by the defendants.
  30. Minimize harm to the students’ Christian upbringing and education caused by the defendants.
  31. Minimize harm to the students, parents, and supporters reputations and psychological well-being caused by the defendants.
  32. Minimize the number of people who may join in the Christian Faith from being influenced by the hypocritical, dangerous, deceiving, fraudulent, conspiring, and betraying defendants.

WCS/GBC CHILD MOLESTERS AND RAPISTS (ADMITTED, CONVICTED, IMPRISONED, MULTIPLE ACCUSATIONS)

Dwayne
Smith
1987
Mike
Reed
1988
Jason
Crary
1989
Bill
Williams
Superintendent

Dwayne Smith (WCS Teacher/Coach/Youth Director for elementary-age children)
Admitted and confirmed (by FCCS) child molester, graduated from WCS in 1987.

Mike Reed (GBC Youth Pastor)
Convicted gunpoint rapist, graduated from WCS the very next year in 1988.

Jason Crary (WCS Teacher/Coach/Youth Director for elementary-age children)
Convicted child molester, graduated from WCS the very next year in 1989.

Bill Williams (WCS Superintendent)
Taught and/or coached all three of these sex offenders, later became the WCS Superintendent, and was himself accused of child molestation several times and claims that it was merely an “inappropriate emotional attachment” with the student.

All four of these men were given jobs at WCS/GBC in close contact with thousands of children over the years. Therefore, these facts must also be considered while investigating the crimes committed by the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney.

Information about sexual misconduct by other WCS teachers and GBC staff exists but that information has not been made public yet and, therefore, will not be presented here to prevent any possible claims of libel.

SUMMARY

The defendants clearly understand that this case is not at all about arbitrarily throwing sinners under the bus or overboard. This case is about the defendants who deliberately threw the students under the bus along with repeat child molesters that the defendants knew would be lead into temptation to molest children again. The defendants then deliberately threw the parents overboard while continuously deceiving and defrauding them about the “risk” to their children for over 10 years. Thanks to the Columbus Dispatch newspaper, the defendants got caught; otherwise without any doubt at all, the defendants would still be deliberately putting the students at “risk” with child molesters lead into temptation to molest again, while deceiving and defrauding the consumers about it, while working and conspiring to cover up those crimes.

Without any doubt at all, the defendants clearly understood that if the consumers learned that their children were being taught and coached by repeat child molesters, the parents would have immediately removed their children from the school and stopped paying money to WCS (approximately $60,000 per student for pre-school to grade 12) as well as GBC. These criminal offenses committed by the defendants have severely harmed the students’ Christian upbringing and education as well as the reputation and psychological well-being of the students and parents as well as those of us who supported the school and church by volunteering our time, donating our money, and sponsoring by businesses.

News story about WCS Teacher/Coach/Youth Director Dwayne Smith, the admitted and confirmed (by FCCS) repeat child molester and the “big-time liable” “risk” who blamed his 13 year old victim by saying “She had been coming on to me for a while.after his supposed “confession, counseling, forgiveness, accountability, and eventually restoration”.
NOTE: The defendants had known from 1996 (for over a decade) that Dwayne Smith, son of the then WCS Superintendent Taylor Smith, was an admitted and confirmed (by FCCS) repeat child molester.
We parents only learned these facts when the defendants got caught.

NOTE: The defendants later acknowledged that WCS/GBC indeed knew of the accusations in Wisconsin against Crary from at least 2002 when the Superintendent at Heritage Christian Schools (HCS) of Wisconsin called WCS/GBC and warned them about Crary repeatedly molesting a student.
We parents only learned these facts after the child molester was arrested at WCS.

Audio recording of parent asking WCS/GBC if admitted and confirmed (by FCCS) repeat child molester Dwayne Smith would still be employed at WCS if WCS/GBC had not been caught, and WCS/GBC refuses to just say “Yes”.

7_FCCSFinding.mp3 (10/25/2007)
Recorded at first Parents Meeting after WCS/GBC administrators got caught.
Audio recording of parent asking WCS/GBC what the FCCS findings were about the admitted repeat child molester (that WCS/GBC deliberately withheld from the parents and that the FCCS never cooperated with the Worthington Police about), and the WCS/GBC response that “sexual misconduct was substantiated”.

8_DirtyPigs.mp3 (10/25/2007)
SOMETHING TO CHUCKLE ABOUT?
Recording of WCS/GBC spokesman referring to the Columbus Dispatch as dirty pigs for that newspaper having the decency to inform the parents the truth about the WCS/GBC administrators deliberately putting the students at "risk" while deceiving and defrauding the parents about it.
The parents chuckling along with their deceivers (i.e. the WCS/GBC administrators) in that recording clearly demonstrates the ease at which those parents who remain behind at WCS can be and have been manipulated by their proven dangerous deceivers.

9_CoverUp.mp3 (2/28/2008)
Recorded at second Parents Meeting after the bogus WCS/GBC investigation (Combined_Reports.pdf) report came out. That report foolishly states that “WCS has never attempted to cover up any improper acts”.
However, one of those who attended the cover-up meetings stated publicly the following about the fact that GBC and WCS were covering up the fact that one of the child molesters had repeatedly molested a 13 year old student against her will and did not merely have an adulterous affair with a consenting adult:

"I was a Lead Pastor here for eight years and a Director Of Junior High Youth Ministries in the past. This is a Watergate. The church covered it up. I was in the meetings. I've known all these years that it was a student. And I was told to get back to wiping noses and not to let it out."


LEGAL DEFINITIONS

CONSPIRACY from http://definitions.uslegal.com/c/conspiracy/

Conspiracy is a separate offense, by which someone conspires or agrees with someone else to do something which, if actually carried out, would amount to another Federal crime or offense. It is an agreement or a kind of partnership for criminal purposes in which each member becomes the agent or partner of every other member. It is not necessary to prove that the criminal plan actually was accomplished or that the conspirator was involved in all stages of the plannig or knew all of the details involved. The main elements that need to be proven are a voluntary agreement to participate and some overt act by one of the conspirators in furtherance of the criminal plan. If a person has an understanding of the unlawful nature of a plan and knowingly and willfully joins in that plan on one occasion, that is sufficient to convict him for conspiracy even though he had not participated before and even though he played only a minor part. A conspiracy may exist when the parties use legal means to accomplish an illegal result, or to use illegal means to achieve something that in itself is lawful.

CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE from http://definitions.uslegal.com/c/criminal-negligence/

Criminal negligence is negligence which requires a greater degree of culpability than the civil standard of negligence. The civil standard of negligence is defined according to a failure to follow the standard of conduct of a reasonable person in the same situation as the defendant. To show criminal negligence, the state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt the mental state involved in criminal negligence. Proof of that mental state requires that the failure to perceive a substantial and unjustifiable risk that a result will occur must be a gross deviation from the standard of a reasonable person. Criminal negligence is conduct which is such a departure from what would be that of an ordinary prudent or careful person in the same circumstance as to be incompatible with a proper regard for human life or an indifference to consequences. Criminal negligence is negligence that is aggravated, culpable or gross.

DECEPTION from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deception_(criminal)

Any deception (whether deliberate or reckless) by words or conduct as to fact or as to law, including a deception as to the present intentions of the person using the deception or any other person.
Deliberate or reckless A deception will be deliberate when the defendant knows that what he represents as true is untrue. This is predominantly a subjective test, matching the general approach to establishing intentional behaviour. The test of recklessness is also predominantly subjective to show that the defendant is aware that what is represented may or may not be true, excluding the extended meaning of recklessness in R v Caldwell [1982] AC 341.

From http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/deception
The act of misleading another through intentionally false statements or fraudulent actions.

FRAUD from http://definitions.uslegal.com/f/fraud/

Fraud is generally defined in the law as an intentional misrepresentation of material existing fact made by one person to another with knowledge of its falsity and for the purpose of inducing the other person to act, and upon which the other person relies with resulting injury or damage. Fraud may also be made by an omission or purposeful failure to state material facts, which nondisclosure makes other statements misleading.

To constitute fraud, a misrepresentation or omission must also relate to an 'existing fact', not a promise to do something in the future, unless the person who made the promise did so without any present intent to perform it or with a positive intent not to perform it. Promises to do something in the future or a mere expression of opinion cannot be the basis of a claim of fraud unless the person stating the opinion has exclusive or superior knowledge of existing facts which are inconsistent with such opinion. The false statement or omission must be material, meaning that it was significant to the decision to be made.

Sometimes, it must be shown that the plaintiff's reliance was justifiable, and that upon reasonable inquiry would not have discovered the truth of the matter. For injury or damage to be the result of fraud, it must be shown that, except for the fraud, the injury or damage would not have occurred.

To constitute fraud the misrepresentation or omission must be made knowingly and intentionally, not as a result of mistake or accident, or in negligent disregard of its truth or falsity. Also, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant intended for the plaintiff to rely upon the misrepresentation and/or omission; that the plaintiff did in fact rely upon the misrepresentation and/or omission; and that the plaintiff suffered injury or damage as a result of the fraud.
Damages may include punitive damages as a punishment or public example due to the malicious nature of the fraud.

COVER-UP from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cover-up

A cover-up is an attempt, whether successful or not, to conceal evidence of wrong-doing, error, incompetence or other embarrassing information. The expression is usually applied to people in authority who abuse their power to avoid or silence criticism. Those who cover up may be those responsible for a misdeed or their allies, or simply people with an interest in silencing criticism.

When a scandal breaks, the discovery of an attempt to cover up is often regarded as even more reprehensible than the original deeds.

MISAPPROPRIATION from http://definitions.uslegal.com/m/misappropriation-law/

Misappropriation is the intentional, illegal use of the property, ideas, or funds of another person for one's own use or other unauthorized purpose, especially by a public official, a trustee of a trust, an executor or administrator of a dead person's estate or by any person with a fiduciary duty to care for and protect another's assets. It is a felony, punishable by a prison sentence.

OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE from http://definitions.uslegal.com/o/obstruction-of-justice/

Obstruction of justice is an attempt to interfere with the administration of the courts, the judicial system or law enforcement officers. It may include tampering with or intimidating, hiding evidence or interfering with an arrest. It is something a person does to impede the administration of a court process or proper discharge of a legal duty. Interference may be with the work of police, investigators, regulatory agencies, prosecutors, or other (usually government) officials. Often, no actual investigation or substantiated suspicion of a specific incident need exist to support a charge of obstruction of justice. Such activity is a crime.

CONTINUED WCS/GBC BETRAYALS AND CRUELTY TO CUSTOMERS

What follows is continued Worthington Christian Schools (WCS) and Grace Brethren Church (GBC) betrayals and cruelty to their paying customers after WCS/GBC got caught harboring several repeat child molesters while deceiving and defrauding the customers about it.

WCS/GBC Attorney, Daniel R. Swetnam, Refuses To Answer Questions

The Supreme Court of Ohio Office of Disciplinary Counsel “investigates allegations and initiates complaints concerning ethical misconduct and/or mental illness of judges or attorneys” (and prosecutors?). The Supreme Court of Ohio suggested that a parent find out if it is the policy of the SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) Law Firm to defend their lawyers (e.g. WCS/GBC attorney Daniel R. Swetnam) who are guilty of serious misconduct. Also to be determined was if anyone else at SZD (now Ice Miller LLP), besides Daniel R. Swetnam, was aware of the serious crimes committed by WCS/GBC before October 2007. Note too that Michael J. Anthony of Anthony Law stated earlier that it is perfectly acceptable and legal for a person to perform his or her own “Fact Finding Investigation” in regard to crimes committed against that person or persons.

After asking the question suggested by the Supreme Court of Ohio, the SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) lawyers were emailed the following “Final Question” during the “Fact Finding Investigation”:

“Besides Dan Swetnam, was anyone else at SZD aware of these crimes against the consumers before October 2007?”
After Daniel R. Swetnam (the SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) lawyer who took part in these crimes) claimed that some of this information is false, the information in this document was emailed to Dan Swetnam and Jay Dingledy at SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) with the following request:
"For the record, please identify any information that you believe is “false”."
Swetnam never did respond to that question, which indicates that there is no false information and no libel; otherwise, Swetnam surely would have responded.

Instead of answering those simple questions, SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) chose to use and abuse the already overloaded court system and waste taxpayer dollars by filing frivolous Telecommunication Harassment complaints. For details, refer to CORRUPTION EXPOSED BY A PARENT in regard to the crimes committed by the WCS/GBC administrators and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney, Daniel R. Swetnam, against we parents and our children. That section presents the intimidation by the SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) Law Firm, Judge James E. Green, and Prosecutor Robert S. Tobias and exposes serious corruption at the Columbus Prosecutor’s Office.

EXPOSED Columbus Prosecutor Incompetence & Corruption

Amazingly, Columbus Prosecutor Robert S. Tobias refused to fulfill his responsibilities to prosecute the Worthington Christian Schools (WCS) and Grace Brethren Church (GBC) administrators and their Schottenstein, Zox, and Dunn (SZD) (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney, Daniel R. Swetnam, who got caught during their 10-year Conspiracy of Criminal Negligence, Deception, Fraud, and Cover-Ups (for which there is overwhelming and irrefutable evidence) against thousands of students and parents.

Realizing the serious corruption involved, efforts intensified with the Supreme Court of Ohio to have Daniel R. Swetnam disbarred for his part in those serious crimes.

SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) Lawyers and Prosecutor Use And Abuse Court System

Incredibly, that very same prosecutor, Robert S. Tobias, then accepted the frivolous complaints by the SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) lawyer Jay Dingledy after the parent simply asked those two questions, the first as suggested by the Supreme Court of Ohio, about the serious crimes. The parent was then prosecuted by Robert S. Tobias, sentenced to three (3) years probation, and was forced to report in person to the probation officer each month, which severely disrupted the parent’s business that is most often conducted out of the state. That for simply asking two questions about the crimes committed against that parent, his family, and thousands of others by Worthington Christian Schools, Grace Brethren Church, and their SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) attorney over a 10 year period.

Daniel R. Swetnam Refuses To Answer Questions In Court As Well

During the Court Proceedings above, Daniel R. Swetnam once again refused to answer questions in regard to the serious crimes committed by him and the administrators at Worthington Christian Schools and Grace Brethren Church. Below is a portion of the Court Transcripts. The question needed to be worded very carefully to avoid objections from Robert S. Tobias to get a response from Swetnam as suggested by the Supreme Court of Ohio:
CICERO QUESTION:
Now, if I ask you if you gave legal advice to Worthington Christian Schools or Grace Brethren Church about any teachers or staff or administrators with regard to any allegations of child molestation or inappropriate behavior with a student or inappropriate emotional feelings for a student, would your answer be now that you can't without violating an attorney/client privilege?
SWETNAM RESPONSE:
Yes. That goes to the essence of the attorney/client privilege.
Swetnam demonstrates that any lawyer who takes part in any serious crimes with his client(s) will merely hide behind attorney/client privilege to avoid fulfilling his responsibility to answer questions about those crimes. Even when those crimes are in regard to deliberately endangering thousands of children while harboring several repeat child molesters while deceiving and defrauding thousands of parents about it for many years.

SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) Lawyers Brutally Harass Customer (BUT JUDGE REACTS)

The SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) lawyers Daniel R. Swetnam and Jay Dingledy have been trying desperately to have the parent put in jail; first for following the suggestion by the Supreme Court of Ohio, then again over the definition of the word “title”, then again because the parent contacted appeal attorneys, then again because a newspaper published a Letter To The Editor written by the parent, and yet again for the parent distributing purely factual political information.
Refer to Your Tax Dollars At Work.

That parent was forced to appear in court once again on October 26, 2010 as the SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) lawyers continued to brutally harass that parent and severely disrupt his business.
However, the judge evidently realized that the SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) lawyers and law firm were simply attempting to intimidate the parent because the judge actually removed wording from the probation requirements.

SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) Lawyers Manage To Have Customer Put In Jail (BUT JUDGE REACTS AGAIN)

After the desperate SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) lawyers and law firm failed once again to intimidate and manipulate the parent, the parent was put in jail on January 24, 2011 (for 9 days) for informing the public about a group of committed people who discover and alert the public about child molesters and about organizations that knowingly endanger children while harboring child molesters.

However, the judge evidently realized that the SZD (now Ice Miller LLP) lawyers and law firm were simply using and abusing the court system in an effort to intimidate the parent because the judge dropped the entire case including all probation requirements that had been imposed on the parent.

Proven Conclusion

Many have stated that this is an extremely powerful demonstration that reveals just how dangerous and evil that Worthington Christian Schools and Grace Brethren Church really are; while those who remain behind are terrible examples to their very own children (and other Christians and non-Christians) by being so easily manipulated by and cowering to their demonstrated evil and dangerous deceivers.
Refer to Matthew 18.6 and Mark 6.11.

Visitors:


Matthew 18.6
"But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."

Mark 6.11

"And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city."
