COGIC Bishop Accused Of Sexually Assaulting A Female Member For 20 Years And 'Grooming' Her Six-year-old Daughter In $12.2 Million Lawsuit!!!
Reader a bishop at one of the largest African-American Christian churches in the United States has been accused of grooming and sexually assaulting a female member of the denomination for more than 20 years. Kimberly Pollard, who is now 37, filed a $12.2-million lawsuit against the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) and Bishop James L'Keith Jones, accusing the church of allowing her to be sexually assaulted by the high-ranking bishop for 20 years, according to court papers obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com. Pollard claims that Jones not only groomed her into what became a 20-year sexual relationship and extra-marital affair, but also tried to groom her six-year-old daughter, telling her she looked 'sexy' and that he would wait until she was 18 to date her. The mother-of-one from Lubbock, Texas, says that the relationship between her and Jones turned sexual in or around 1995 when she was still a minor.
