TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - Convicted evangelist Tony Alamo and his wife are being ordered to reveal the source of money used to pay their lawyers.
The Texarkana Gazette reported Sunday that U.S. Magistrate Barry Bryant ruled that arrangements for attorney fees are not protected by the attorney-client privilege and must be revealed.
Attorneys for two men that Alamo was convicted of ordering to be abused want the information. They believe Alamo is concealing money in order to avoid paying $15 million to each man as ordered by a federal jury that convicted Alamo in 2010 of conspiracy, battery and outrage for ordering the abuse of the men when they were boys living in Alamo's ministry.
The 79-year-old Alamo is serving a 175-year prison sentence for bringing young girls across state lines for sex.
