Superintendent of Church of God in Christ Saints Academy in Lexington, Mississippi Larry Weem offered to pay off all 5 female plaintiffs in a disturbing sexual assault case a few years ago. He avoided an embarrassing clergy sex abuse case as well as a lengthy stay in prison. The 5 child sex abuse victims received a healthy settlement without ever going to trial. The church still helps fund the school, and there are child sex abuse victims still out there who have not come forward. These alleged child sex abuse attacks on the children occurred while Weems was in charge of a religious school. Weems spent a number of years as a minister at Davis Temple in Mississippi. He was a national trustee in charge of a large facility for the Church of God in Christ Saints Academy. How many other innocent children out there did he sexually abuse over the years? How many more sex abuse claimants have yet to come forth?
