Rev. Stan Archie’s Christian Fellowship Baptist Church is ordered to pay $350,000 in abuse investigation

A split verdict in a lawsuit alleging that a local clergyman sexually exploited a former church staff member gave both sides something they wanted. “I think this is a good and fair verdict,” said Rebecca Randles, who represented the former staffer and her husband. Jurors awarded less than one-quarter of what the church staffer had asked for — $750,000 — and the jury declined to consider punitive damages.
