Days after MormonLeaks published an audio recording and transcript of a nearly three-hour conversation between a former Mormon Missionary Training Center (MTC) president and a Colorado woman who has accused him of attempted rape, settlement talks between the woman and the LDS Church have stalled.

In the explosive recording, the woman details how Joseph L. Bishop allegedly ripped her clothes and tried to rape her. She also presses him to confess to other misconduct.

“Since the leak, there have been no further settlement discussions” with the LDS Church, the woman’s attorney, Craig Vernon, confirmed to The Salt Lake Tribune on Thursday. “My client deserves justice.”
