It appears that there is a conspiracy in Michigan to wrongly convict a Native American pastor, Jonas Moses. We interviewed his daughter, Jennifer. Apparently, Pastor Moses was set up on false child molestation charges. His daughter feels this was done by a former church member who demanded a return of the money he had paid into the church while a member. As a corrections officer, the former member seems to have the cooperation of the detective in this case. Charges were filed regarding two young people in the church. One is a 15-year-old foster child who has made similar accusations about three other men, all of whom were convicted. The second woman (now around age 20) used to date the disgruntled former member's son. Her mother testified that this young woman admitted to her parents that she was not truthful about Pastor Moses having assaulted her.

The Michigan Innocence Clinic lists causes of wrongful convictions: 1) Eyewitness Misidentification, 2) Junk Science, 3) False Confessions, 4) Government Misconduct, 5) Snitches, and 6) Bad Lawyering. There should be another category added for individuals who deliberately lie to authorities for reasons like jealousy, greed, reveange, and to gain attention. Fortunately, the weight of evidence favors Pastor Moses, and his case resulted in a hung jury in the first trial. Re-trial was scheduled for August 3-5, 2016.
Pastor Moses insisted he was never even alone with either alleged victim.
"I'm a married man," testified Pastor Moses. When asked by the defense attorney if he loved his wife, Pastor Moses responded, "Yes, these two hands have only touched my wife."
