Texarkana Gazette/July 10, 2009

A man with long-standing ties to Tony Alamo Christian Ministries pleaded no contest Thursday in a California courtroom to 20-year-old, child-abuse charges, according to a spokesman with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Douglas Christopher, also known as Allen Matthew Rehn, received three years probation and 164 days in jail for his role in the beating of 12-year-old Justin Miller in 1988 on ministry properties near the Saugus community of Santa Clarita, Calif., said spokesman Sandy Givens.

"It was part of an arranged plea," Givens said.
