At his Facebook page, ex-JW activist John Redwood reported from the scene at an Arkansas criminal trial, relating the dramatic events of what happened Thursday.

Redwood was there to see former Jehovah's Witnesses elder Roderick Watkins tried for numerous allegations of child sexual abuse that took place over several years (and Watkins is also a suspect of additional abuse in Indiana, Redwood says).

In an unusual move, Watkins took the stand to testify in his own trial, something defense attorneys usually counsel against, and it appeared to backfire against the former church elder.
