Jury selection continues in a lawsuit against a Tulsa church and school where students say they were molested.

Five former students at Grace Fellowship Christian School are making the allegations. Their lawsuit says the school should be held accountable for exposing them to sexual abuse. It also claims the school did nothing to stop a former teacher from molesting them.

Former PE teacher Aaron Thompson[pictured] pleaded guilty last year to charges he molested boys at the school. A judge sentenced Thompson to 25-years in prison.
