Just when we were starting to think that investigative reporting is dead in America, the Orange County Register began to report on this story of intimidation, bullying, lawsuits, counter lawsuits, and opulent lifestyles among the leadership of the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Paul and Jan Crouch, who run the enterprise, hired their granddaughter, Brittany Koper, as CFO last year. When Brittany apparently began to try to clean up the finances of the organization she was soon given the boot along with her father, Paul Crouch Jr., who was being groomed to take over.
Among many incredible details of her own whistleblower-style lawsuit, Mrs. Koper alleges that her own uncle was tapping on a firearm while advising her to keep TBN finances and the Crouch family’s dirty laundry secret– or else. A few days later, the same uncle -— Matt Crouch– and her grandfather Paul Crouch made similar threats on air during their daily broadcast, “Behind the Scenes.”
Granddaugther Carra Crouch alleges rape and coverup happened six years ago…
One of Paul and Jan Crouch’s granddaughter’s, Carra Crouch, filed suit against TBN on Monday 6/18/2012. She alleges she was raped six years ago at age 13 by a 30-year-old TBN employee and that the rape was covered up by her grandmother Jan Crouch and her 2nd cousin John Casoria–TBN’s in-house council. Carra is Brittany Koper’s younger sister. Carra Crouch’s lawsuit can be found here.

This whole inicident is thankfully coming to light and it is infuriating to read how this 13-year-old was so shamefully treated by family members after the rape. I have yet to read any excuse as to why the parents of Ms. Carra Crouch didn’t report the incident to police and, appallingly, appear to have allowed the grandparents to “call the shots” regarding counselling and treatment for their own daughter. I can’t get past the fact that mention of the lack of Carra Crouch’s parents taking charge of their daughter’s well-being in spite of the media-powerful grandparents’ wishes appears to have been omitted in any reports I have read regarding the rape. I feel so sorry for what this young girl continues to experience.
Isn’t the type of rape described here not simply statutory, but also forcible because of not only the age of the girl, but the assailant illegally providing alcohol to a minor child and a date rape drug for the purpose of committing rape/sexual assault on a child below the statutory age of consent, which would anyway constitute rape, even if the complainant were of majority age yet incapacitated by the assailant’s administration of a dangerous intoxicating substance to the victim for the purpose of perpetrating non-consensual sexual act/s, the administration of which being without informed consent or any knowledge by the victim, would still constitute rape of an adult victim? By the way, if that was a run on sentence, then I do not care one bit.
I HAVE NO USE FOR PAUL CROUCH, JAN CROUCH AND ESPECIALLY THE
TWO FACED TRANSPARENT MATT CROUCH. HE IS SO FULL OF HIMSELF THAT HE NEVER GIVES ANYONE A CHANCE TO TALK. I NEVER WATCH THAT NETWORK ANYMORE EXCEPT TO GO THERE TO WATCH JOEL OSTEEN OR JOYCE MEYER. I AM TELLING AND SPREADING THE WORD A BOUT THE SINS OF THIS MINISTRY.
