1 of 1 Tea Party Supporter Convicted of Raping His 7 Year Old Daughter
Ex-Marine, Charles Dyer has been convicted of raping his 7 year old daughter with a recommendation of a 30 year sentence by the jury. Dyer, who has posted videos on YouTube under his July4Patriot channel, was convicted during his third trial stemming from charges of rape and forcible sodomy. The first trial ended with no verdict and a mistrial was called in April 2011.
According to ABC News, prior to the second trial “The sheriff also said that Dyer had been seen hanging around the courthouse in the days leading up to the trial, wearing a thigh holster and backpack and carrying a Bible. McKinney said the behavior was meant to intimidate people at the court.”
ABC News reports “Dyer is part of a controversial group called Oath Keepers that includes current and former law enforcement and military members who take an oath to obey the Constitution rather than the president. Dyer has posted videos on YouTube talking about a "New World Order" and calling for people to "rise up" against "tyrannical government."”
Dyer is a member of a group that supports the Tea Party movement known as the Oath Keepers. Members of the Oath Keepers are former military and police. Their website say, “Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, peace officers, and veterans who swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic … and meant it.”
