(See below for Link to other important information about the paedophile situation in the Watchtower Society.)
From Silentlambs.org below is a list of elders prosecuted in the UK in the last four years so far (2010-2014). This is public record of which most involves elders in congregations when the children were harmed.

"Twenty-six congregations in four years! This highlights the epidemic of pedophiles caused by bad policy that continues to this day. The Governing Body has clearly shown they could care less about protecting kids or assisting victims. Currently the UK Charity Commission is reviewing tax exempt status of the organization due to abuse allegations. Interestingly the Worldwide Work Fund is a tax free cash cow that collects billions of dollars from the public and members. Every donation results in a few cents of each dollar going to fund the defense of a pedophile and using elders to obstruct justice. Please do not make donations to this fund as it ultimately hurts Jehovah’s Witness kids." - William H. Bowen, silentlambs.org
My own comment: The 50 states of the U.S. has different privacy laws than the U.K. has. Logically the number of convicted JW pedophiles raping JW kids must be much higher than in the UK. Keep a paper copy of this handy for active JWs in the real world anytime you find one trying to downplay the crisis going on within the Watchtower Society misleadership over JWs.
