Alamo follower pleads guilty to federal charge

FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) – A follower of jailed evangelist Tony Alamo has pleaded guilty to a federal charge of failing to register as a sex offender.

Jonathon Patrick Curry pleaded guilty to the charge Thursday in federal court at Fort Smith. Forty-9-year-old Curry could face a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Curry was arrested Jan. 13 at a Tony Alamo Christian Ministries warehouse in Fort Smith, where prosecutors say he lived.

Curry served more than five years in a Nevada prison on a charge of attempted lewdness with a child younger than 14.

Alamo is awaiting trial in July on charges he transported juvenile girls across state lines for sex.
