Minister Thomas Fortenberry of the Greater Harvest Community Church in Pasadena will not face trial for allegedly filming girls at his church while showering because the passage of the statute of limitations. The case is an example of how the statute can cut off prosecution even though the crime only occurred in 2007.
Fortenberry reportedly organized a “Fear Factor” game at the church and picked four girls to be drenched in honey. He then told them to take a shower where he allegedly had hidden a camera. To make the story all the more bizarre, he later dated one of the girls and, as they moved toward marriage, told her about the filming. She then went to the police. When confronted by a police officer, Fortenberry, 30, did not deny filming the underaged girls.
Since it was more than three years ago, he is now free to go.
It turns out that there are some racy passages involving honey in the Bible: “Your lips drip nectar, my bride; honey and milk are under your tongue; the fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon.” Song of Solomon 4:11 It did not however mention a video camera and tape player.
