Yet Another New Title for Ronald Weinland
False Prophet Ronald Weinland has claimed to be an Apostle, the end-time Elijah, Zerrubabel, and I’ve lost track. But we can add one more title to his long list — Convict.
The jury got the case this afternoon and came back in less than 4 hours with guilty verdicts on all five counts. Ron is on home detention, sentencing on September 24. Guess he’ll have to update the “Trips” page on his blog where he publishes his upcoming travel schedule. Oh, I see that he’s deleted that page entirely.
More details as I get them.
Jim Hannah of the Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky has written another article for the ending of the trial.
Ron decided to testify in his own defense. Bad move Ron. You’re no better at being a witness than you were being a Witness. A couple of excerpts:
But under cross examination by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert McBride, Weinland began to appear ill at ease as he tried to explain why he deducted such expenses as a stay at The Venetian hotel and casino in Las Vegas, tickets to the Blue Man Group, and shopping trips to Nordstrom.
And Jim’s article ended:
At one point, Weinland fired back at McBride, and said: “I feel like you are twisting some things here.”
Ron, you know twisting all too well. Read Jim Hannah’s full article “Doomsday Prophet Guilty of Tax Evasion“.
