First, a youth leader in a western Missouri church pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a minor.
Then the victim sued the church, New Life Bible Church of Easton, and its former youth leader, Michael J. Landy.
And now the church is suing the victim’s parents, saying they were negligent for placing her in Landy’s care. The action contends
the parents — who are missionaries for the church — “breached their duty to
provide for the proper care, custody and control of their daughter.”
