A man who donated $150,000 to the founder of a Christian school in Kansas has filed a lawsuit to get his money back after the founder failed to build the school and got arrested for unlawful touching of underage children.
The Kansas City Star reported last August that Dennis Creason, 48, the co-founder of the Oaklawn Christian School in Shawnee, was charged in Johnson County District Court with nine counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child between January 2015 and August 2018.
Joseph Layne, according to a recent Star report, filed a lawsuit against Oaklawn Christian School, Creason, and his wife Robin who are the founders of the school, in a bid to get back his donation.
It was noted that Layne was a member of an unnamed church when Dennis Creason asked him in June 2017 to donate money to help construct a new building for the school. Layne agreed to help and donated $150,000.
Information shared online said Creason and his wife started the school in their home while they were members of Life Mission Church, a megachurch in Olathe, Kansas, where Creason and his wife are reported as founding members.
