MILTON, Fla. -- An activist with ties to anti-abortion violence has been jailed after losing an appeal of his conviction and 18-year prison sentence for molesting a teenager at the home for troubled girls he operated.

Sheriff´s deputies took John Burt, 67, into custody Wednesday. A three-judge panel of a state appeals court on Friday unanimously upheld his conviction on five counts of lewd or lascivious molestation or conduct with a child under 16.

Defense lawyer Nicole Ferry said Burt will appeal further.

Burt has been a key figure in anti-abortion protests and violence in nearby Pensacola. He had associated with Michael Griffin, now serving a life sentence for fatally shooting an abortion doctor in 1993, and Paul Hill, executed in 2003 for the shooting deaths of another doctor and clinic escort in 1994.

Burt was convicted last year of molesting a 15-year-old resident at Our Father´s House, which he and his wife operated near Milton.

His appeal objected to Circuit Judge Ron Swanson´s decision to let the victim, now 18, testify from Northern Ireland on a satellite television link, arguing that deprived him of being able to face his accuser.

The victim testified Burt improperly touched her and wrote a note propositioning her.

Re: Abortion protestor molests children in his spare time
Here is a recent example. IT is not the entire story though. It turns out that he had several hidden cameras around the church including in the bathroom and even in the chappel. The really sick part of it is that the members of the church are still going to support him. They bailed him out and are going to help with his defense costs. Fucking sheep.


Ayden preacher arrested

SURF CITY - A Pitt County preacher was arrested Saturday after a woman reported that he was allegedly videotaping her child on the beach in Surf City.

The woman called Surf City police and when officers apprehended the Rev. Leon Earl Harris, 54, of Ayden, they allegedly discovered additional videotapes and recording devices in his car, said Chief Michael Halstead of the Surf City Police Department.

"He was secretly videotaping people on the beach," Halstead said.

Officers took Harris´ video camera and when they searched his car, they found other video tapes, Halstead said.

"Upon viewing the tapes, we realized it was all done in Pitt County," said Halstead who didn´t reveal what was on the tapes.

Surf City police charged Harris with possession of pornographic images, which is a felony, and turned him over to the Pitt County Sheriff´s Department.

Harris was put in Pitt County Jail under $5,000 bond on Sunday, which he paid and was released, said Lee Moore, chief of investigations at the Pitt County Sheriff´s Department.

Harris, who is a preacher at a Free Will Baptist church in Pitt County, has still not been charged with anything in Pitt County, but the Pitt County Sheriff´s Department is still investigating him, Moore said.

The funny part is that my friend and I both had the same response when someone said, "Did you hear about Leon?". We both responded, "He´s gay?" (Yes I know the slime. I grew up in that area.)

Kreeper,

As you say, the real news is a completely different story. In itself, taking photos and videos of people at a public beach (for personal use, not for publication) is perfectly legal and reasonable, and those who try to make it into a "crime" are fascist hypocrites. But the real story, as you said, lies elsewhere: in Harris´s secret videotaping of rest room occupants:

The difference, of course, is the "reasonable expectation of privacy." Anyone walking around at a public beach, or in any other public place, clearly cannot expect visual privacy. If you don´t want to be photographed in a thong or a bikini, don´t wear one in public! But fascist hypocrites demand the right to wear anything (or nothing!) in public, while suffocating other people´s right merely to record what is obviously meant to be publicly seen.

OFC,

He was taking candid photos of children with a hidden camera. That isn´t covered by public domain. He was caught in the act by one of the children´s mothers and they got into a fight when she tried to take the tape. A deputy happened by and broke them up. That is how he got caught.

Where I live, there is a man that brings an underwater camera to the pool and takes pictures of children under water. Is that included in public domain? He may just be trying to brake the ice because he is lonely and insecure. Or he may be a pervert. Either way, it isn´t right.

All I have to say about this is... wow. A person gets molested by another human being, and all you can do is blame Christianity? You´re sick. Why not look at the ACTUAL problem: He molested someone. Should it matter if he´s Christian, Pagan, Buddhist, or other? From your view, I´m sure that you fail to assert that Christianity is the predominant religion in America and obviously, you´re going to hear about more cases of it. You make me sick.
