"Christian businessman receives felony conviction for helping girl escape lesbian ‘mother’"
"A Christian activist and entrepreneur who helped a child and her mother escape the United States to avoid joint custody with an unrelated lesbian was convicted Thursday by a federal jury of 'conspiracy to commit offense' against the U.S. and aiding and abetting an 'international parental kidnapping.'
Philip Zodhiates, 61, did not contest the allegation that in late 2009 he had driven Lisa Miller and her daughter Isabella to Buffalo, New York, where they crossed the border into Canada and then flew to Nicaragua, where they were sheltered by the country’s Mennonite community. However, his attorney argued that it was unproven that Zodhiates knew Lisa Miller’s motives for the trip.
The two charges for which Zodhiates has been convicted could result in a sentence of up to eight years in prison and a $500,000 fine. He is scheduled to be sentenced on January 30.
Mennonite Pastor Kenneth Miller, who is unrelated to Lisa and Isabella, is already serving a 27-month prison sentence for helping to coordinate the reception of Lisa and Isabella in Nicaragua. Last week, he refused to testify against Zodhiates and was found in contempt of court. He may be sentenced to more prison time as a result.
A second Mennonite pastor, Timothy Miller (unrelated to Kenneth and Lisa Miller), has also been charged in connection with the case. Miller was recently deported from Nicaragua and is now under arrest in the United States while he waits for a court date, according to the Justice Department.
The three allegedly aided in the escape of Lisa Miller and seven-year-old daughter Isabella from the custodial power of Miller’s former civil union partner, Janet Jenkins, who had been named by a judge as Isabella’s second 'mother,' although she was unrelated to Isabella and had never adopted her."
