Attorneys for a sexual abuse victim have said they will file a lawsuit Monday at the Lewis County Justice Center against Vanceburg Christian Church.
An advisory from Kircher Law Office in Mason, Ohio, states the lawsuit “will allege that the Vanceburg Christian Church is liable to the victim for the sexual abuse inflicted upon him by the church’s pastor and the victim’s resulting injuries.”
The advisory states the victim (Plaintiff “John Doe”) is a teenager who suffered severe and repeated sexual abuse at the hands of former Vanceburg Christian Church pastor Duncan Aker Jr.
Aker pleaded guilty in March to five counts of first degree sexual abuse as part of a plea agreement in which charges of four counts of first degree sodomy were dropped.
