Street preacher arrested at National Cornbread Festival found guilty of disorderly conduct
SOUTH PITTSBURG, Tenn. —
A Marion County judge has found a street preacher guilty of disorderly conduct after his arrest at the National Cornbread Festival last month.
Terry House won't spend any time in jail, however, and he won't have to pay any fines.
According to his wife Karen, the judge agreed to make a bench decision to avoid a trial by jury.
Karen tells us the judge did agree Terry was preaching in a public place. However, because there were complaints, that fell under a rightful charge of disorderly conduct.
The Houses have 10 days to appeal the ruling.
Depend on us to keep you posted as we learn more.
