Oh, okay. Well, we should let him go free then since the ‘devil made him do it.’ This should be called The ‘Flip Wilson’ Defense. BTW, isn’t Jesus more powerful than el Diablo in the life of a Christian? Check this tool out.
An Oklahoma missionary who is accused of raping and molesting ten children at the Kenyan orphanage where he was working claims he was possessed by a demon named Luke, federal prosecutors say.
In text messages released in court documents, 19-year-old Matthew Lane Durham talked to a friend about his supposed alter-ego: ‘Literally he takes me at night and there is nothing I can do to stop him.
‘… I’ve prayed so much, but every night Luke gets what Luke wants.’
Prosecutors have alleged that Durham of Edmond engaged in sex acts with as many as ten children aged 4 to 10 – including one who is HIV positive – while volunteering at the Upendo Children’s Home near Nairobi from April to June 2014.
He faces up to life in prison if convicted of engaging in illegal sexual conduct in foreign places, aggravated sexual abuse with children and other charges.
The indictment alleges that Durham traveled from Oklahoma City to Kenya in order to engage in illicit sexual conduct with children at Upendo, which specializes in assisting neglected Kenyan children by providing them with food, housing, clothes and academic and religious instruction.
The indictment also accuses Durham of engaging in illicit sexual conduct with minors under 18 years of age and aggravated sexual abuse of a child under 12.
