Last week we reported on the arrest of 29-year old Christian talk-show host Josh Kimbrell who was arrested, charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a 3-year-old boy in Greenville, SC. The Christian Post is reporting that Kimbrell's friends are coming to his defense, claiming this all stems from a bitter custody battle between Kimbrell and his ex-wife.
Police accuse Kimbrell of playing a game with the minor that involved inappropriate touching and fondling. Kimbrell is also chairman of the Palmetto Conservative Alliance Foundation in South Carolina. A statement issued from the Alliance challenges the accusations as a character assassination by Kimbrell's ex-wife. "In our experience with Josh Kimbrell, we know him to be a loving, devoted father to his son. Josh has a right to be presumed innocent. At this stage in the process, the allegations that have been made against Josh are only allegations, not proof, which must be determined by the legal system."
