University Sued Over Molestation by Ministry Student

February 22, 2011

California courts have cleared the way for a suit to go forward against Point Loma Nazarene University for allegedly placing a ministry student with a family nearly 30 years ago without telling the parents that the student had been convicted of child molestation, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. According to the suit, the ministry student had told the university of his conviction -- and he then went on to molest the family's 6-year-old daughter and 2-½-year-old son. The university has not commented on the allegations, but tried without success to get the suit dismissed on statute of limitation grounds.
