Prosecutors Refuse to Name Alamo Informants

Federal prosecutors are refusing to name two confidential informants who provided information to the FBI about jailed evangelist Tony Alamo.

Prosecutors refused the request in a filing Tuesday to U.S. District Judge Harry F. Barnes. Prosecutors say Alamo’s lawyers failed to offer a convincing reason to name the informants, who offered information that led to a raid on his southwest Arkansas compound. Prosecutors also hint that those informants may be underage girls sexually or physically abused by the 74-year-old evangelist.

Alamo has pleaded not guilty to a 10-count federal indictment accusing him of taking young girls across state lines for sex. His trial is scheduled to begin Monday.
