Family of sexual abuse victims targets local church

The family of two sexual abuse victims plans to take a local church to court.  A family spokesman says he expects the lawsuit to be filed Tuesday.

The abuse is linked to Patrick Farmer, who pleaded guilty to four counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact last year. He reportedly volunteered at Paramount Baptist Church where the incidents occurred.

According to the Randall County District Attorney, Farmer is now serving a six-year probation term.
