Alamo jury sends second query to judge

About 2:30 p.m. today, the jury seated to determine Tony Alamo’s fate sent another question to the court.

U.S. District Judge Harry Barnes called his court reporter, prosecutors and defense attorneys into chambers for a review of the note and Barnes’ answer.

The defense declined to say what the latest question was about, stating they were prohibited from doing so until the court publishes it officially in the record.

Alamo is facing a 10-count federal indictment accusing him of bringing young girls across state lines for sex.

After the first note, which contained two questions, lead defense attorney Don Ervin of Houston said, “This may take longer than many anticipated.”

The first note was presented a few minutes after 11 a.m.

Deliberations began at about 8:17 a.m.
