Tony Alamo Guilty On All 10 Counts

Jurors have found Tony Alamo guilty on all 10 counts of child-sex charges. Each count carries a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Sentencing will take place in six to eight weeks. Former church members are overjoyed. No current church members or anyone who testified on his behalf, including Sharon Alamo, have commented.

Jurors arrived at the Texarkana federal courthouse at 8:30 a.m. Friday and reached their verdict at about 10:45 a.m. They spent 8 1/2 hours discussing the 10-count federal indictment against the 74-year-old Alamo on Thursday.

Jurors paused twice to ask questions of the judge. The court won’t say what they were about. Alamo’s attorneys said it was about clarification of the Mann Act.

Prosecutors said Alamo took five underage girls across state lines for sex as far back as 1994. They said one was as young as 9 and was “married” to the evangelist. (See related link for release from Justice Department)

Defense attorneys say the girls traveled on legitimate business for Alamo’s ministry, which espouses an apocalyptic form of Christianity.

    People are afraid to comment on Tony Alamo, but I’m not. That man is a sham, and I’m not afraid of him. No one should be afraid of anyone, but God. He alone must we fear and dread and not puny men who take the name of our God in vain and delude themselves into thinking they are some “lords”. Tony Alamo is nothing!!!!!!!!
    This is time for justice!!!!
