Jan. 9 hearing set in McDonald County cult case

A Jan. 9 arraignment is scheduled in McDonald County Circuit Court for Laura Epling, Washburn, who faces statutory sodomy charges in connection with the Grand Valley Independent Baptist Church sex cult investigation. The hearing will be conducted by Judge Tim Perigo.

Mrs. Epling was bound over for trial following a preliminary hearing Monday. Details of her alleged crime were provided in Jeff Lehr's article in today's Joplin Globe.

Laura should fare well in prison.
However I don't think any one of them will see any time in prison or jail. They will pay their way out with Evenson and LePage or the next corrupt attorney and/or judge that comes along.
Hmm..wonder what perks come with that?
