Haugh was arrested after police were tipped off to the crime by a Childline report. Childline is a hotline that accepts abuse complaints from mandatory reporters, operated by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. According to the Childline report, the victim was 4 years old at the time of the incident, which occurred in 2005. Her family were members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the York Daily Record reports.

In line with an affidavit of probable cause filed by York Area Regional Officer Scott E. Longnecker, police authorities were notified of the sexual assault in October 2017. The affidavit goes on to claim that, while attending the Kingdom Hall in Windsor, the victim’s mother left her with the congregation when she went to use the restroom.

It is then alleged that Haugh took the young girl into a secluded area and sexually assaulted her. The victim’s father went to search for his daughter and found her and Haugh in a room, with the victim on Haugh’s lap. The father says he saw Haugh touching his daughter inappropriately beneath her clothing.

Windsor Church Elders Accused Of Concealing Abuse

The victim’s family quickly reported the alleged assault to church elders, believing that the elders were mandatory reporters. Police say the elders never reported the abuse to the police. The Windsor Township elders have been accused of covering up the assault, along with suspected abuse committed against additional children.

John Logan Haugh is a resident of Dagsboro, Delaware. After being arraigned, he was released after posting 10% of a $20,000 bail set by District Judge John H. Fishel.

This is not the first time that a Jehovah’s Witnesses church has been accused of concealing sexual abuse from secular authorities. It is a policy of the church that sexual abuse complaints be handled internally, rather than reported to the police. Many critics say Jehovah’s Witnesses congregations routinely flout mandatory reporting laws.
