I don’t know much about this case. Was he doing this all the time and just got caught? ,or was it this one time, like stalking that particular woman? Looks like a creep. Maybe this was a last resort attempt out the church and his callings, to be excommunicated, in a sick, perverted way. Don’t think he’ll risk jail though doing that. I hope his wife leaves him
When this happened John Dehlin contacted or was contacted by several people in this guy's wards, stakes and businesses. According to the info Dehlin dug up, this guy has been accused of sexual harassment and fired from jobs previously and several members reported inappropriate behavior while he was bishop and high councilman. His wife seems to support his bad behavior.
I think it's very common for members to expect other members to excuse bad behavior, especially if they are in leadership callings. I can only imagine that this pervert probably has other issues (porn, sexual fetishes, he might be a cross-dresser- you never know) that the church would be alarmed.
When I've shared some of my pitiful memories of Brother Blowhard, an overbearing youth leader, my Mom barely acknowledges that many of his shenanigans crossed the line. In the end, she strongly asserts "but he meant well in teaching you and he has a wonderful voice. All those harmonic solos were lovely."
