Tina-Anderson
Tina Anderson was 15 when she was raped twice by Ernest Willis, a friend of her family. When she became pregnant, her mother Christine Dooley and Chuck Phelps, the pastor of Trinity Baptist Church (IFB) in Concord, NH which Tina’s family attended, conspired to hide her from the authorities so that the crime could not be prosecuted. While she was being hidden, Tina was homeschooled.

After Tina reported the rapes to Dooley and Phelps, Phelps alerted the police. However, he immediately arranged for Tina to leave the state and stay with congregants Clovis and Diane Landry in Colorado. The Landrys homeschooled Tina during her pregnancy and for some time afterwards. Tina’s child was given up for adoption. During her senior year Tina was permitted to attend a Christian school as long as she did not tell anyone about what had happened to her. She finally came forward to police in 2010. Willis was found guilty of forcible rape and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
