TEXARKANA, Ark. — A federal judge has again ordered the sale of a convicted evangelist's church in Fort Smith.

The Texarkana Gazette reported Saturday that the order to sell Tony Alamo's church rejects five liens filed against it by Alamo followers. The newspaper reports that U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Bryant ruled Thursday that the liens had no enforceable contracts or proof of billing.

The sale is to partially satisfy a $30 million judgment owed by Alamo to two men he was convicted of ordering to be beaten when they were children in his ministry. Other Alamo properties have also been ordered to be sold to help satisfy the judgment.

The 79-year-old Alamo is serving a 175-year prison sentence after being convicted in 2009 of taking young girls across state lines for sex.
