Court orders MINISTER to start jail term….FINALLY!

This just in:

FULLERTON, Calif.-A minister who recently reported an attack by a group of youngsters at his Orange County church has been ordered to report to jail next month for violating probation in a lewd-conduct case.

Assistant District Attorney Jaime Coulter said Willie Holmes, president and founder of International Nondenomenational Assemblies, must report to jail March 6 to start serving a 60-day sentence, the Orange County Register reported Saturday.


Holmes, 41, attracted media attention last week when Fullerton police arrested three teenagers suspected of attacking him and his family as they were driving to his church. Holmes says a group of youths stepped in front of his car on Feb. 13 and tossed rocks, bricks and bottles.

Court records show Holmes pleaded guilty to engaging in lewd conduct and was sentenced to three years’ probation for the November 2006 misdemeanor.

Holmes later pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of contempt of court for violating the terms of his probation on Feb. 4, 2008. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years’ probation, and ordered to stay away from Hillcrest Park in Fullerton.

Holmes was arrested a few days after his guilty plea on suspicion of misdemeanor indecent exposure, lewd conduct in a public place and loitering around a public toilet.

The indecent exposure count was dismissed, and he pleaded guilty to the other two counts. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years’ probation

And then his paid excuser:

Holmes’ lawyer Jacqueline Goodman Rubio noted in a statement Sunday that the charges against Holmes stemmed from a police sting operation involving a decoy and not an actual victim.

“Like everyone else, he is not perfect,” said Rubio, who has represented Holmes in all three cases. “But unlike others, my client has owned up to his mistakes and is cooperating with the authorities to pay his debt to society.”

…..and then goes right out and does it again.

Rubio said Holmes chose to report the attack last week because he wanted to stand up for what he believed in: “peace in his community.” despite facing “danger and humiliation” for going public.

Holmes’ wife, Vanessa, 49, told the newspaper she was unaware of her husband’s criminal record.
