Attorney leaves Alamo defense team

TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) – 1 of jailed evangelist Tony Alamo’s lawyers has left his defense team.

California attorney Danny Davis, who defended Alamo on 1988 abuse charges and took on Alamo’s latest case in March, is no longer working on Alamo’s defense against federal child sex-related charges.

Left defending Alamo is Houston attorney Don Ervin and Jeff Harrelson of Texarkana. In March, Alamo fired John Wesley Hall Jr. of Little Rock and hired Davis and Ervin.

Ervin would not discuss why Davis left, saying attorney-client privilege prevents his speaking on the matter.

The 74-year-old Alamo has been in federal custody since his arrest in Arizona following a September raid on his compound in Fouke. Alamo is charged with taking underage girls across state lines for sex.
