January 2019 Trial Date Approaching
Attorneys Chris Davis of Davis Law Group, P.S. and Lincoln Beauregard of Connelly Law Offices, PLLC are preparing for the January 7, 2019 sexual abuse civil trial against Western Washington Corporation of Seventh Day Adventists.
The two attorneys jointly represent a 10-year-old girl who was the victim of sexual abuse at the Mountain View Christian School in Sequim, WA. The school is owned and operated by the Sequim Seventh-day Adventists Church with oversight from the Washington Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
The victim attended Mountain View Christian School and was a student of Douglas J. Allison during the 2015-16 school year. She was sexually molested in the classroom on multiple occasions until Allison was arrested on June 28, 2016.
Allison was sentenced in September 2016 to 26-and-a-half years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of first-degree child molestation and two counts of first-degree child rape for crimes against two students in the school. He’s currently serving his sentence in Airway Heights Corrections Center west of Spokane.
The civil lawsuit was filed in June of 2017.
Court documents allege that school leaders and church officials did not investigate past allegations at other Seventh-day schools in California prior to hiring him work at Mountain View Christian School. And that during his employment complaints of inappropriate student contact were not investigated.
Hosler v. Western WA Corp of Seventh Day Adventists (17-2-15589-6 SEA) will be tired in King County Superior Court. The honorable Judge Timothy A. Bradshaw will preside over the case. Courtroom C-203.
