Gerald Fitroy Griffith was found guilty of two counts of sexually abusing a teenage boy in Maryland. Griffith was the founding pastor of Redemption Christian Fellowship Church.
Charging documents said Griffith counseled the boy for two years starting in October 2003. The sexual assaults began in November 2003, when the boy was 14, at the church in Woodlawn, and continued in 2004 and 2005 at several hotels in Columbia, according to statements the youth gave to authorities.
Griffith has been tried before for similar offenses against the same boy, and two others. The trial ended in a mistrial.
Griffith is no ordinary pastor - he claims the title Apostle, which seems a bit lofty and perhaps a tad arrogant. But what the hell, when you are king... There is also concern that Griffith may be an international pedophile. Great, we export freaks now too.
Griffith is looking at up to 18 years in prison where he will come to understand the phrase - "squeal like a pig, boy".
