An essay is presented on sexual transgressions in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), particularly focusing on Mormon Apostle Albert Carrington. It examines his extra-marital relations with Mormons Sarah Kirkman and Janet Edgar Johnstone, or Janette Johnson. The author reflects on Carrington's excommunication from the church and his campaign for readmission. The reactions of several Mormon leaders are considered, including John Henry Smith, John Taylor, and Heber J. Grant.
