A Florence church and a former church worker have been named in a child sex abuse civil lawsuit.
The lawsuit alleges that Cornerstone Church of Christ enabled 47-year-old Kelly Dale Crotts to victimize the children while he worked in various leadership positions at the church.
According to WHNT, Crotts of Florence was previously indicted by a grand jury with three counts of indecent exposure, two counts of child abuse with sexual motivation and two counts of second-degree sex abuse.
The investigation into the case began in May.
Now, a civil lawsuit has been filed with the plaintiffs identified as John Doe I, II and III.
The plaintiffs are seeking unspecified damages.
