A lawsuit filed against the 7th Day Adventist Church alleges church officials knowingly let a convicted child molester work with Lane County children in the 1970's.
The lawsuit alleges the church let Les Bovee lead in both the Junction City and Veneta branches’ youth program “Pathfinder Club”, even though the man was convicted and sentenced for sexually abusing young boys a few years earlier.
The 7th Day Adventist church has not yet responded to phone calls for comment on the lawsuit.
