Leaked Video of Alamo Ministry Child on Internet

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas officials have asked a judge
to take steps to remove from the Internet a leaked video in which a
teenage follower of Tony Alamo defends the jailed
evangelist and says he would never commit the sex crimes of which
he is accused.

In a more than two-hour interview, the girl told a child welfare official that Alamo never touched her and she knew of no one who had been molested by him.

A video of the September interview, conducted a day after FBI agents and Arkansas State Police raided Alamo's ministry, found its way to the Internet late last month.

State law requires that juvenile court proceedings be kept confidential.
