Abuse charges behind a 30 million dollar judgment

Posted: Updated: May 7, 2013 11:19 AM

TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - A stepdaughter of imprisoned evangelist Tony Alamo says she has a $500,000 claim against properties that are part of a $30 million judgment won by ministry members who claim they were abused.

Christhiaon Coie is the daughter from a previous marriage of Alamo's late wife Susan Alamo. Coie filed court papers Friday asserting the claim in a judgment in favor of two young men who were beaten and otherwise abused when they were juveniles in Alamo's ministry.

Cole won a $100,000 judgment against her stepfather in Crawford County in 1995. She sued after Alamo removed her mother's body before her mausoleum could be seized to settle judgments involving unpaid taxes and another civil abuse claim.

Cole claims interest swells her judgment to $500,000.
