TINA ANDERSON: SORRY TO CHURCH FOR BEING RAPED
Church elder Ernest Willis, now 52, has confessed to having sex with Anderson but says it was consensual. But cops believe her and say he raped her twice in her home in 1997.
Church leaders made her apologize and sent away to Colorado by Pastor Charles Phelps to foil a police probe. She gave birth in Colorado
and put the baby up for adoption. A local detective reignited the case last year. Anderson, now 29, is married and has three children in Arizona.
She asked to be ID'd publicly to draw attention to her case. She said: "It needs to be done."
