Reports say District Attorney Scott McNamara argued the "counseling sessions" where 19-year-old Lucas Leonard and 17-year-old Christopher Leonard were brutally beaten should not be covered under her "clergy privilege." The DA explained the privilege should not be applied to the pastor for three reasons:
- There was threatened physical abuse
- No information was confided to her
- A third person was present
The six suspects were charged in the death and assault four days later on Oct. 16.
Days after she was charged, Christopher testified in court explaining what happened the day of the beatings.
