    The man in the article is an elder for two local congregations to South Texas. One of which I used to attend. Article was posted on a local paper last night. Well known and well respected elder. I never interacted with him personally. I will be following this closely.

    $320,000 bond is pretty big - this is pretty major.

    The JW connection is not mentioned in the article.

    I'll bet the local elders have already met and formed a judicial committee - will probably have the meeting onsite and DF him while he is in jail.

    DFing is a foregone conclusion - this guy has less than 0 chance. That way the WTS spokesmen can say with a straight face "oh, he's not a JW".

    Just curious - how does one one guy get to be "an elder for two local congregations" as you posted?

    I have an apostate friend of mine who know him better. He may be either helping or has been moved from one congregation to another for assistance. I have not been to meetings in years so I am not sure but he tells me he is or was an elder on two of the three congregations that meet in that hall.

    I am writting a letter to the editor to inform her of the connection to the JW

    I'm so glad that he has his hair and moustache trimmed so well, as recommended by the Governing Body; what a witness.

    Interesting in that if he was helping in two congregations, he must have been well trusted by the CO to be a good elder. So much for that. I guess the holy spirit screwed up again.

    I just found out thru my wife (she is in the legal field) that the lawyer mentioned in the article is your average Jane Doe. Not certified or specialized in anything

    Hair short and combed: check

    Moustache: tidy and well trimmed: check

    Beard absent: check.

    Goodness knows what he would have done had he sported a beard. Good thing JW organization frowns upon beards.
