SGM, with little experience in ...

SGM, with little experience in crisis management, found its reputation eroding-a situation that only worsened after the bombshell announcement that Montgomery County prosecutors had indicted a 55-year-old man named Nathaniel Morales on child-sex-abuse charges in December of 2012.

Morales had been an active member of Covenant Life Church in the 1980s and early '90s, known for his beautiful singing voice and for his mentorship of the congregation's young men, leading Bible studies and taking them to movies and ball games. But during that same period, he sexually assaulted three teenage boys who had been part of the church. According to evidence revealed at his criminal trial, he targeted boys who came for sleepovers at a CLC family's home, where he lived in the basement. Morales's patterns were as stealthy as they were insidious: He would approach his victims at night, and they'd awake to find him fondling or orally raping them. One man said that Morales goaded him with guilt: Morales claimed that if his advances were resisted, he would have to seek out prostitutes and men in bathrooms and could get AIDS.
...
Morales always convinced her that God was telling him to move on, but now she thinks he was running away from other alleged victims. "I blame the church for covering everything up," she says. "I wish they would have reported it to the authorities sooner."
In the end, Morales was turned in only because one of his victims, as is typical of many child-sex-abuse survivors, finally went to police after years of suffering in silence. Morales was found guilty and, more than two decades after his crimes, was sentenced to 40 years in prison.

...
Nathaniel Morales, 55, has been indicted in Montgomery County Circuit Court on 10 counts of sexually abusing four boys under his care.
Morales, now a Pentecostal bishop in Las Vegas, has a hearing scheduled for Friday .
Police began investigating in 2009 after a man came forward to say that Morales had performed sex acts on him beginning when he was about 14 years old.
Morales was a member of Covenant Life Church and a teacher at the victim's school, the now defunct Montgomery County Covenant Life Academy. Morales held Bible studies and sleep overs at his Germantown apartment where the victim said much of the molestation occurred.
The victim's father told detectives that he talked with pastors about Morales, but there were "concerns of tarnished reputations," and no police report was made.
Police interviewed two pastors who confirmed that they talked to Morales about the allegations that he was abusing boys.
...
Police said they then discovered three more victims, who all told similar stories of Morales sneaking into their bedrooms at night and molesting them. The alleged abuse occurred at the boys' homes, on camping trips and at the school.
Another father, when questioned by police, told investigators that he had confronted Morales, and Morales asked for the father's forgiveness. The father told police that Morales confessed, and he forgave the man.
