Looks like Bishop Eddie Long will finally get his day in court this summer……..

According to the AJC:

The judge in the case told Channel 2 Action News that he is scheduling trial for late summer, the TV station reported Thursday. The threat of a trial appears to conflict with an earlier statement by State Court Judge Johnny Panos.

Four young men have accused Long, the pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, of sexual coercion. He has denied the allegations.

Around Easter, Panos said that the major obstacles to settlement had been resolved and that the parties were discussing small details.

Everyone is “presumed” innocent until proven guilty- – but if it comes out that this monster did in fact coerce these impressionable young men into sexual acts, we hope the judge throws the book at his holier than thou preaching self!
