Evangelist Alamo Sentenced To 175 Years In Prison

An Arkansas judge has sentenced evangelist Tony Alamo to 175 years in prison Friday on charges that included taking minors across state lines for sex, according to media reports Saturday.

“Mr. Alamo, one day you will face a higher, a greater judge than me,” Judge Barnes said. “May he have mercy on your soul.”

The evangelist offered a brief statement to the court praising God, then adding, “I’m glad I’m me and not the deceived people in the world.”

One woman who Alamo took as a child bride at the age of eight, spoke out in court on Friday.

“You preyed on innocent children,” she said, staring down Mr. Alamo, who wore yellow prison scrubs and a windbreaker for the hearing.

“You have the audacity to ask for mercy,” she said. “What mercy did you show us?”

On July 24, 2009 Alamo was convicted in the Federal District Court for the Western District of Arkansas, sitting in Texarkana, Arkansas, on 10 counts of Interstate Transportation of Minors for Illegal Sexual Purposes, Rape, Sexual Assault and Contributing to the Delinquency of Minors, according to Wikipedia.
