- Cobb County and Acworth police are investigating multiple cases of alleged child molestation on behalf of a church youth group volunteer.
Cesar Pastrana, 25, is in custody at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center according to authorities on Monday. Cesar was charged with aggravated child molestation, child molestation and sexual battery.
A youth group lock-in, also known as “THRIVE,” was held Feb 3 and 4 by Kennesaw’s Northstar Church at a private Cobb residence.
Pastrana is accused of molesting two of the attendees. However, authorities aren’t convinced this is the end of it.
We’re not limiting the scope of our investigation to just churches,” Pierce told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “We’re also asking about schools and anything he volunteered to do.” (AJC, Brooks)
The truth is, sexual misconduct allegations (true and false) are on the rise. Even if your organization’s members are 100% innocent, misconduct allegations require legal defense. And, legal defense is costly!
Sexual misconduct coverage protects your organization and its members, directors, officers, employees and/or volunteers up to the policy limits with potential expense that may include necessary legal expenses. Even if your organization is not specifically aware of the alleged incident, your Non-Profit can still be held liable in the court of law.
Sexual Misconduct Allegations are one of the most serious financial exposures that your organization faces today. As your Georgia NonProfit problem solvers, we urge you to protect your organization and mission with the right coverage at the best price.
