TULSA, Okla. — The mother of a 13-year-old girl allegedly raped at a Tulsa megachurch is suing the church for waiting two weeks to report the allegation.

The lawsuit – first reported by the Tulsa World – was filed Friday in Tulsa County District Court. It seeks more than $75,000 and alleges that Victory Christian Center officials tried to conceal the allegation in an effort at "damage control."

Former church employee Chris Denman is charged with raping the girl before a church service Aug. 13.

He has pleaded not guilty. Five other employees are charged with failing to report the allegation.

A church spokesman did not respond to a request for comment. The church said in a previous statement that employees failed to follow a written policy requiring abuse allegations to be reported.
