“She had contacted me approximately half an hour before I got a phone call from the Dallas Police Department… She absolutely knew that I wasn’t going to be home. She asked me if I was with my family.

Because we could spend 24/7 tracking the sins of right-wing religionists (especially “youth pastors”) and never get caught up. Of the following, the more interesting cases will probably end up with their very own Conservative Babylon entries.
Awaiting sentencing: Carlton F. Hammonds, 56, former pastor, Willows Baptist Church, Willows, California, after an October 1 conviction of three felony counts of lewd acts and one misdemeanor count of sexual battery against two teenage girls. Hammonds was due to be sentenced in November, but prosecutors are considering asking for a psych evaluation before sentencing.
