The following statement was issued by chief operating officer Doug Goodman:
"In our 85 years, we have never had, nor will we ever have any tolerance for anyone who seeks to harm a child, in any physical, emotional or sexual way."
The suit, which was filed last week in U. S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas says Kanakuk President Joe White kept Pete Newman on staff working with children even after 1999 and 2003 incidents in which Newman was cavorting in the nude with the children.
Newman is serving two life sentences, plus 30 years, after pleading guilty last year to several sex crimes involving teenage boys.
