Larry Jackson was a pastor in Gladewater, Texas. Life was simple for Larry. The work was good and he had ample unsupervised access to young girls. I mean, good old Larry was pastor of the 45 member, Gladewater Church of Christ. Everyone knows a pastor is a man of God. Everyone knows that a man of God would not rape young girls. Right?
Testimony in the sentencing trial of Larry Jackson, 55, of Kilgore will continue today in a Gregg County court. He could be sentenced up to life for each charge.
....The oldest sister, who was 9 years old at the time of the abuse, said the girls would stay at Jackson's home while their mother was working, and they would occasionally stay overnight. She said Jackson twice removed her from her sofa bed in the living room, placed her on the floor and attempted to penetrate her.
She said he stopped when she began to cry.
The younger sister, who was 7 years old at the time of the abuse, said Jackson performed oral sex on her three times and tried penetrating her once.
Yep. A man of God.
No word yet if the mother will be prosecuted for placing her daughters in harms way.
