Parents sue Texas megachurch for ‘breach of fiduciary duty’ during daughter’s abuse

H0USTON (ABP, TAB) — A lawsuit was filed Oct. 1 accusing Second Baptist Church, Houston, of careless hiring and supervision of a former youth minister who is currently incarcerated for sexual assault of a child. In 2013, Chad Foster was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to soliciting a teen online and raping a 16-year-old girl in 2011. The rape victim’s parents are seeking actual damages in addition to punitive “exemplary” damages for “breach of fiduciary duty,” saying Foster was “acting within the scope of his employment” when he committed the assault. The relationship between Foster and the victim began when she was 12 years old. Gary Moore, pastor of Second Baptist, denied the allegations.
