3ABN sued over child molestation!
« on: June 20, 2011, 09:37:43 AM »

I just got a phone call from a fellow who claimed to be Attorney Jeff Herman. He said that a lawsuit was filed in federal court against 3ABN, and that he was about to head to a press conference about it.

That is right about 10 am this morning attorneys for plaintiff, Alex Walker, filed their law suit in Chicago Illinois against 3ABN. Sources have told me there was huge media coverage for this event.

Christian network sued in child sex abuse case
   
By Manya Brachear
Tribune reporter
1:37 p.m. CDT, June 20, 2011

An international Christian radio and television network based in West Frankfort and the brother of the network’s founder were named in a federal child sex abuse lawsuit filed in Chicago today.

Three Angels Broadcasting Network, or 3ABN, and the Rev. Tommy Shelton, the brother of the network’s founder Danny Shelton, were named in the complaint filed by plaintiff Alex Walker, 25, of Mattoon.

Walker alleges that Tommy Shelton sexually abused him when he worked as a production assistant at 3ABN in 2001. Walker’s lawyer Jeff Herman of Miami said Shelton commuted to 3ABN from his home in Kentucky for the purpose of abusing Walker, which Herman believes makes the civil suit a federal case.

Walker originally met Shelton in 1997 during a two-month visit to Virginia, where Shelton served as a pastor. Shelton now faces criminal charges in Virginia tied to those abuse allegations.

A spokeswoman for 3ABN said she had not seen the lawsuit. The network is affiliated with the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

Probably Linda Shelton will be happy not to be listed as a co-founder now.

You can try looking on the Fox site.  Those news shows tend not to have a schedule or a very flexible schedule, allowing last minute changes in favor of the most current news stories.
