(THECHURCHREPORT) ā€” A granddaughter of Trinity Broadcasting Network founders Jan and Paul Crouch filed a lawsuit Monday alleging that she was plied with alcohol and raped by a TBN employee when she was just 13 ā€” and that her family covered up the incident, rather than report it to authorities, to protect TBNā€™s reputation.

According to the complaint, Carra Crouch claims says she was 13 when Stephen Smith drugged and raped her in a hotel room while she was attending a Trinity fundraiser and telethon in Atlanta, in April 2006.
