Texas company added to lawsuit against ministry

A Texas security company has been added as a defendant in a lawsuit against businesses operated by Tony Alamo Christian Ministries of Fouke and people associated with the ministry.

The lawsuit by seven women says they were beaten, denied food and psychologically abused. Six say they were forced as children to marry Alamo and the seventh says she was being groomed as his wife before escaping.

The Texarkana Gazette reports that Robert Gilmore and Associates Security of Wake Village is now accused of knowing about sexual abuse of underage girls and failing to report it.

Robert Gilmore denies the allegation and said if he had known of abuse it would have been reported.

Alamo is in prison after being convicted in 2009 of taking minors across state lines for sex.
