Justice: Popular Alabama televangelist Acton Bowen is sentenced to 1,008 years, the maximum penalty allowed, after pleading guilty to 28 charges of raping and sexually assaulting multiple children.

Before his arrest in 2018, Bowen was the host of xlroads TV, a global broadcast reaching millions every week.

AL.com reports:

Alabama evangelist Paul Acton Bowen was sentenced Friday to 1,008 years in prison – the maximum on all counts – for his guilty pleas to sexually abusing a half dozen teenagers.

In addition, he was ordered to pay $840,000 in fines for all counts, also the maximum.

ABC News reports:

Acton Bowen, the evangelist who served as a youth minister for teenage boys and became a best-selling author was given the maximum sentence for all 28 charges related to sexually abusing six teenagers in Etowah County on Friday. The sentences are to be served consecutively which means Bowen would serve roughly 1,008 years before being released.

Before being arrested for raping and sexually assaulting children, Bowen, founder of Acton Bowen Outreach Ministries, was a wildly popular youth evangelist and the host of xlroads TV, “a worldwide broadcast viewed weekly by millions of teens and adults in every city in America and over 170 countries around the world.”

Reporting on Bowen’s popularity, ABC News notes:

The news of Bowen’s arrest in 2018 shocked many in east Alabama’s Christian community where he was considered a hometown hero. Bowen had served as chaplain for the 2012 Olympics, made appearances on Fox News, and promoted himself as a spiritual adviser to Hollywood Stars including Justin Beiber.

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
