Anti-gay Christian attorney Lisa Biron guilty of producing child porn, sexual assault of 14-year-old girl

Lisa-Biron-via-FB-pageNew Hamphsire “Christian attorney” Lisa Biron, associated with the anti-gay litigation group, Alliance Defending Freedom, was found guilty on eight charges related to child pornography and child sexual assault, including transportation of a minor with intent to commit criminal sexual activity, sexual exploitation of children and possession of child pornography.

Founded in 1994 by “more than 30 prominent Christian leaders,” including Focus on the Family’s James Dobson and American Family Association’s Donald Wildmon, among others, according to Huffpo-via-Queerty, Alliance Defending Freedom has been “fighting against gay rights for over 18 years,” although none of their attorneys stepped up to defend Biron, accused not only of “taking a 14-year-old girl to Canada to make a child porn film with a Canadian youth, sexually exploiting the girl in making videos of her with another man,” but also “making a cellphone video of herself engaged in sexual activity with the girl,” according to The New Civil Rights Movement.

The jury took all of an hour to find Biron guilty. “The evidence was pretty overwhelming,” one juror told a reporters at the New Hampshire Union Leader.

At the sentencing hearing set for April 22, Biron faces a minimum of 25 years. “She is going to deserve whatever she gets,” said another juror at her trial.

The Leader reports that one of several videos of Biron

made with a cellphone, shows Biron and the victim engaged in sexual activity in Biron’s home. Several others showed the 14-year-old victim engaged in sexual activity at a Canadian hotel.

Biron and the teen went to Niagara Falls over the 2012 Memorial Day weekend to meet a 19-year-old Canadian, Kevin Watson, who the teen had met online, so the girl could have sex with the Canadian.

Watson testified that the trio smoked marijuana, drank alcohol and had sex, with Biron videotaping Watson and the young girl. Watson said he had sex with Biron, too, and she took a photo of him on the bed between her and the young girl.

A former Merrimack teen, Brandon Ore, 18, testified he met Biron when he answered a Craigslist personal ad, “2 girls looking to party, 18 and 33.”…

The final witness, who testified Thursday morning, was FBI forensic examiner James Scripture Jr., who testified that he had copied the hard drive from Biron’s laptop and cellphone memory and was able to pinpoint where and when videos and pictures on the laptop were created.

He said the video of Biron engaged in sexual activity with the young girl had been created May 18…. That was a week before, Biron told several witnesses, that she took the young girl to Canada and created a “keepsake” video of the girl’s first sexual experience.

According to The New Civil Rights Movement:

The Alliance Defending Freedom until recently was named the Alliance Defense Fund, and describes itself as “a servant ministry building an alliance to keep the door open for the spread of the Gospel by transforming the legal system and advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family.”

The ADF has been representing a litigant in the Prop 8 case, and has been associated with many anti-gay lawsuits, but what’s shocking is the ADF was cofounded by, among others, the founders of two of America’s most virulently anti-gay hate groups: the American Family Association (Don Wildmon) and the Family Research Council (James Dobson).

The Leader reports

Biron, who had put her hands over her ears and put her head down Wednesday when the sounds from a video of her with the young girl was played for jurors, did not have a visible reaction to the verdict.
