KOB Eyewitness News 4, New Mexico/August 15, 2013

An Albuquerque woman filed a lawsuit claiming a church leader sexually abused her as a child.

Monica Jaramillo said Michael Brunner, an elder at the Jehovah's Witness church in Los Lunas, sexually abused her when she was just 8 years old.

Jaramillo, now 35, filed a lawsuit claiming other elders of the church knew about the incident but chose to do nothing.

The complaint also alleges Jaramillo's mother was raped by Brunner.

Jehovah's witnesses in Los Lunas told KOB Eyewitness News 4 that Brunner left the congregation years ago.
