Alamo follower pleads guilty to federal charge
FORT SMITH, Ark. -- A follower of jailed evangelist Tony Alamo has pleaded guilty to a federal charge of failing to register as a sex offender.
Jonathon Patrick Curry pleaded guilty to the charge Thursday in federal court at Fort Smith. Forty-nine-year-old Curry could face a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Curry was arrested Jan. 13 at a Tony Alamo Christian Ministries warehouse in Fort Smith, where prosecutors say he lived.
Curry served more than five years in a Nevada prison on a charge of attempted lewdness with a child younger than 14.
Alamo is awaiting trial in July on charges he transported juvenile girls across state lines for sex.
