Florida Baptist Convention found liable for former pastor who abused boy
from Orlando Sentinel
A Lake County, Fla., jury found the Florida Baptist Convention liable for a former pastor who sexually abused a 13-year-old boy. Jurors decided that the convention didn't do enough to investigate the background of Douglas W. Myers, who started two churches in Lake County after receiving funds and training from the convention. The convention had argued that it is more of a support organization for Baptist churches and that it didn't have any control or responsibility for Myers.
