Texarkana, Arkansas - A bankruptcy judge has agreed to reopen the closed Oklahoma bankruptcy case of a member of Tony Alamo Christian Ministries.
A trustee overseeing the case of Thomas Scarcello asked to reopen the case to look for possible assets Scarcello may not have reported. Trustee Gerald Miller says his office has learned that some information may not be accurate.
Court records show Scarcello filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in the Eastern District of Oklahoma in September 2009. The case was closed and his debts were released in December 2008.
Fort Smith attorney Darrell Johnson represented Scarcello in the bankruptcy case and says he doesn't know what is happening. Johnson says he hasn't been able to talk with Scarcello.
Alamo was convicted in July of taking young girls across state lines for sex and is awaiting sentencing.
