Kentucky churches confront several cases of sex abuse by church leaders

Accused of sending sexual emails and text messages to a 15-year-old girl he met through church, Jonathan Hall's case is the most recent example of a persistent problem at churches in Kentucky and across the nation. In 2011, allegations involving child sex abuse were the top reason that churches were in state appellate and federal courts nationwide, said Matt Branaugh of Christianity Today.
