Jury Awards $2M to Granddaughter of TBN Founders, Finding Jan Crouch Acted ‘Outrageously’

An Orange County jury Monday awarded $2 million for past and future damages to the granddaughter of a founder of the Trinity Broadcasting Network, finding that her grandmother acted “outrageously” to allegations that the plaintiff was molested when she was 13 by a TBN employee.

Jan Crouch died in May of 2016.

Carra Crouch will only collect $900,000 of the verdict because jurors, who deliberated for about 7 1/2 hours over three days, found that Trinity Christian Center, the Santa Ana-based nonprofit that runs the evangelical Christian broadcasting giant, is responsible for 45 percent of the damages.

Crouch’s father was not held liable and 35 percent was assigned to her mother, Tawny.

Though Carra Crouch had sought $6 million in damages, her attorney, David Keesling, said they are “completely satisfied with their (jurors’) judgment.”

    Christian News, there are far more serious things going on. Canada decided to take away children from Christian homes for not complying with the Sodomic policies. Just against the Christian homes and not other religions. Please report more important, serious persecution news than stuff like this.

      Wow, that’s terrible if they are taking children from their parents! Do you have a name of the family so that I can Google it for more details.

        Go to lifenews dot com. It has everything. It’s horrible what secular Western whites are doing this century. You guys need Christianity to be normal and moral.

          My search skills are not that good. I could not find anything about children being taken away from their parents there.

          If you give me the name of the family, I’m sure I could find it. Thanks!

            Not yet, but they are planning it and making those into laws. West’s new nazisation by Sodomy. Liberals make co-existance impossible.

            So why did you say “Canada decided to take away children from Christian homes for not complying with the Sodomic policies.” If it’s not true?

            They have never done it, there are no laws that allow them to do it, and there are no bills in the works that would allow them to do it in the future.

    Christian News, Canada is making the laws to take away children from Christian homes for not-complying with the nation’s Sodomic policies. Those are the far more serious news than this. Please report on those things.

    They should repay all of the sheep they fleeced.

    What was she doing smoking and drinking out on a balcony, or anywhere else, if she worked for TBN, relative or not? Something stinketh.

    What an outrageous story. This is why parents/grandparents should ALWAYS inform the police IMMEDIATELY after sexual molestation is reported.
