five and dime

Another pastor goes down.

A former Dallas pastor has received a 5-year prison term for molesting a 10-year-old boy whose family he'd known for more than 50 years. Larry Joe Crocker also was sentenced to 10 years of probation yesterday, to be served after his release from prison. The 59-year-old pastor of the now-defunct Lakeview Christian Church was convicted on two counts of indecency with a child.

I lose track of their crimes. There are so many children damaged by men hiding behind god - it is sickening.

I am ashamed to say that I knew this guy. I can't understand why anyone stood by him throughout the trial. He is exactly where he is supposed to be, and hopefully he will have to serve his entire sentence. All we can do now is pray for him and the victims that he scarred forever.

I also knew Pastor Larry. I do not believe the accusations brought against him. I hope he gets out soon. I pray for him and his family. He does not deserve to be in prison.

I also knew Brother Larry and I too believe he is innocent. I pray that God brings him and his family through this. Those who say they knew him also know that he has a family and I ask that if you decide to post negative things about him remember them before you do so. Please at least have respect for his family even you have lost respect for him.
