Four children, including a 9-year-old boy, his 8-year-old sister, and a 10-year-old boy, were sexually abused by their babysitter, Daniel Sweetman, around March 1991. Sweetman was the son of Julius Schacknow, the leader of a new religious movement to which the children’s families belonged. The children in the group had been homeschooled since 1988 on Schacknow’s orders after a teenager had disclosed abuse to one of his teachers.

Sweetman was convicted of sexual abuse and sentenced to a year in prison.
