Alamo defense team seeks new trial

Tony Alamo’s defense team has filed a motion requesting a new trial.

A jury in the Texarkana division of the Western District of Arkansas found him guilty one week ago of bringing young girls across state lines for sexual purposes.

The motion, signed by Jeff Harrelson of Texarkana, said Alamo did not get a fair trial for a variety of reasons.

Among the defense’s complaints is that the jury was prejudiced by testimony concerning Alamo’s sexual relationships with adult women, his prior felony conviction for tax evasion and the alleged physical abuse of women living in his home.
