Victims Testify Against Minister Who Allegedly Abused Them

   A Harrison County jury has spent two days hearing shocking testimony in the case against former Marshall minister, Gerald Thomas.

   Three boys testified Thomas lured them to his house with video games, alcohol and cigarettes. He, then, enticed them to perform sex acts, sometimes recording them on a computer camera.

  Jurors also heard from a computer expert who said Thomas downloaded thousands of pornographic images. Charges against Thomas range from aggravated sexual assault of a child to sexual performance of a child. He pled guilty to one charge of child pornography earlier this week and faces ten years.

   The Harrison County D.A.'s office has one more witness to call before the case is handed over to the jury.
