(9/24/2010) This is getting deep. According to news reports, A fourth young man has come forward and said he had sexual relations with Bishop Eddie Long when he was a teenager, the Associated Press reports. Lord have mercy…when it rains, it pours.
Attorney B.J. Bernstein, who’s filed suits on behalf of three young other men making similar allegations, said she is filing a lawsuit Friday on behalf of a member of New Birth Charlotte, a satellite church in North Carolina. She says the teen met Long in May 2005, according to the AP.
The boy was 17, the suit alleges, when he first engaged in sexual activities with Long while vacationing in Kenya. Long later encouraged him to move to Atlanta, where the activity continued through 2009, AP reports.
