Alamo Lawyers Seek Details of Accusations

TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - Lawyers for jailed evangelist Tony Alamo have asked a federal judge to order prosecutors to provide Alamo's defense with details of the crimes he is accused of committing.

Alamo's defense team filed several motions yesterday in U.S. District Court at Texarkana. The 74-year-old Alamo faces a July 13 trial on a 10-count indictment accusing him of taking young girls across state lines for sex.

The motions asked the court to order the government to produce a bill of particulars that includes specific dates and places where the supposed crimes occurred, and names of people involved.

The defense said it wants to know which state lines were crossed, the exact manner in which Alamo is accused of breaking the law and specific dates and times instead of ranges of months. The U.S. attorney's office could not be reached for comment.
