Convicted East Texas arsonists

12 Feb

In an East Texas courtroom, two men pleaded guilty to burning several churches last year. The pastors offered forgiveness to the two convicts.

Jason Bourque and Daniel McAllister offered insight into what prompted their arson spree, and provided interviews to The Dallas Morning News. On Friday, both men pleaded guilty in Van Zandt County and received life sentences running parallel with life sentences from Smith and Henderson counties.

This week, both men received their first visit from pastor John E. Green of Lake Athens Baptist Church. The pastor appeared at an Tuesday Athens hearing sentencing hearing to offer forgiveness for their burning his church.
