About John Misseldine
John Misseldine Mormon Sex Crime Case Summary
LDS John Misseldine was accused of molesting two children. Misseldine was a
missionary and he told authorities. “His church advised him not to speak with the police
without an attorney present. The victims were ages 7 and 4 and the molestation took place
at a “Las Vegas Valley church.” “According to police reports, Misseldine told officers he had
a similar legal problem in Virginia. The suspect did not elaborate other than to say that the
charges in Virginia were dropped and that the Mormon Church knew about the prior
accusations, according to Las Vegas police reports.” “A Las Vegas Valley woman told
detectives she took her two nieces, ages 7 and 4, and a third girl, age 2, to a Mormon
church at 1775 N. Christy Lane. It is there that Misseldine molested the girls. When the
Aunt was told by the girls what Misseldine did to them she ‘returned to the church and told
an official of the conversation with the children’. “She was not getting any satisfaction, so
she called the police,” the report said.”
