Sex Abuse Scandal Grows With New Allegations
MEMPHIS – New claims of sex abuse at a former Germantown Church. After watching a Local I-Team Report about abuse allegations against a volunteer associate youth pastor, former church member stepped forward claiming she was raped by a Sunday school teacher.
“It was about five to six months from around the time he started talking me to when he forcibly raped me,” said Karen Trotter, claims abuse from church volunteer.
Trotter claims that she suffered almost two years of repeated abuse from a Sunday school teacher at Immanuel Baptist church 25 years ago. The Germantown church changed names, and no longer exists, but, for Trotter, the nightmares continue.
“I verbalized ‘stop no I don’t want this.’ And I believe he said ‘no you really do.’ And I physically tried to stop him. It was not up to me,” said Trotter.

They are protected by New York State laws.
