A 44-year-old man pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a teenage boy he had met while working as a teacher in Long Beach, officials said Wednesday. Gorski was a member of a Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall in the community of Cypress, a bedroom community located in Los Angeles County.

According to the Orange County [California] District Attorney’s office on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, Jason Morris Gorski pled guilty to two counts of “lewd or lascivious acts with a minor under 14.”

According to prosecutors, Gorski met the 13-year-old victim in 2007 while working as a teacher at Southwestern Longview Private School. Public records show that school shut down in 2008.

Gorski had worked at the school for four years. He was an active member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses congregation in the city of  Cypress, California when he met the boy.

In 2009, the teenager reported the abuse to the congregation. Gorski was removed from his position as an elder within the Cyrpress Kingdom Hall congregation, but was allowed to remain an active member. Gorski later moved to South Carolina and started attending a Jehovah’s Witnesses congregation in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The victim reported the abuse to law enforcement in March 2016. The Buena Park Police Department investigated the case and arrested Gorski in June 2016.

Gorski is scheduled to return to court for sentencing on January 26, 2018. He faces a possible sentence of 10 years in state prison.

Another Jehovah’s Witness Elder Pleads Guilty to Sexually Abusing Teen Boy — 8 Comments

  1. Whe need to be accurate that some elders and others are vicitims to of that evil policies of the GB. Last week when i enter a Kingdom Hall they want to remove me with many hands after i put 21 theses on the door of them.They are instructed to handle only and can not go in freedom to speak with me i see. It is such low camping level everywhere worldwide with the JW members too. Am still a JW and even when they not accept me longer am stay and have the right to visit any Kingdom Hall when i want.

  2. I find myself saying “what another one!” There must be a case every week some where in the world.
    There needs to be a full inquiry in the US as was in Australia.

  3. Why wasn’t he disfellowshipped? Is is because he has a penis that he was not? I heard about a sister who was raped at gunpoint in Sacramento that was disfellowshipped because the rapist said he would kill her if she said a word during or after the rape. Therefore in the middle of the night she did not yell, “Help.” The elders told her “she had committed fornication as a result.” The brother with the gun was not disfellowshipped.

  4. There is nothing that shocks me any more as to what goes on in JW.org…seems their GB and the ones in charge feel they are above Ceasars Law, so do as they please. And to think a person once held high regard for these and gave them the honour and …”worship” and financial support they so call deserve…what a waste….head shaking….walking away was and still is the best thing to do!

  5. Interesting how the elders made a big deal out of a man abusing a boy without 2 to 3 preferably male JW witnesses, but when it comes to girls they are labeled “slanderer, fornicator, adulterer,” etc. Could this be because of homophobia??? Or are boys cared about more than girls???

  6. They are allowed to remain an “active member” because they have the
    “2 to 3 preferably JW male witnesses to a crime against humanity otherwise it didn’t happen written by a pervert for perverts rule.” What I told/asked my elders was, “My rapist has more than 3 victims in this Kingdom Hall. Why are they not character witnesses as well since we do not know each other?” I was told it “could appear that it is a bunch of females ganging up on and slandering their dear friend they have know since he was a child.” = Cronyism.
