Charles Crowson reports at Alamo trial on Day 4

Woman Testifies She Married Tony Alamo At 14

In day four against the self-proclaimed world pastor Tony Alamo, the government’s fifth witness testified that she married Alamo at age 14 while he was still in federal prison and that he also married other underage girls.

During direct testimony just before the lunch break, the government’s fifth witness, a 25-year-old girl testified she was forced to marry Alamo at age 14, while he was still in federal prison in 1998.

She also testified that on three seperate occassions she traveled across state lines at Alamo’s direction and either had sex with him on the trip or after returning to Arkansas.

The witness also testified to Alamo’s marriage to several other underage girls.

During direct testimony, she said, “It was a joke in the house that he (Tony Alamo) had an underage girl in the house and he was getting away with it.”

Today’s THV’s Charles Crowson spoke to Tony Alamo when the convicted felon entered the federal courthouse in Texarkana Thursday morning.

Shortly after 6:30 Thursday morning, as U.S. Marshals escorted Alamo into the courthouse, Crowson asked Alamo if he had a comment. Alamo replied “Yeah, I’m gonna win next week.”
