Church volunteer sued by second victim; Robert Sobczak, 20, admitted to molesting 8-year-old boy
Standard disclaimer: Being married and a parent, or saying you are a Christian, does not automatically make you more godly, ethical, or loving than anyone else.
And single Christian ladies who’d like to get married: time to give up on the “be equally yoked” teaching, since so many Christian men are rapists and perverts.

Two lawsuits claim that negligence by officials at a church in South Barrington allowed a volunteer to molest two young boys in a special needs program.
Robert Sobczak Junior, 20, pleaded guilty in December to the aggravated criminal sexual abuse of an 8-year-old special needs boy.
On Friday, the boy’s family filed a lawsuit claiming the ega church was negligent.
It was February 17th 2013, almost a year ago, the 8-year-old boy told his mother, the lawsuit alleges, that Sobczak him into a room and sexually assaulted him.
Sobczak was a volunteer for the “Special Friends” church program and church officials say children in the program– while their parents are in service– are supposed to be under the supervision off at least two people at all times.
Sobczak was immediately arrested but he wasn’t indicted in that case until three months later and that’s when church officials held a meeting informing parents about the allegation.
Parents of another special needs child who filed a lawsuit in November say it wasn’t until after that meeting that church officials told them their child may have been a victim too
