Women Who Claim They Were Child Brides
When Nikki arrived at her mother's house, she discovered that her mother was still being controlled by Alamo and his followers.
"I received a phone call from Tony himself," Lisa says. "Tony told me to have [Nikki] arrested. I said, 'Tony, I can't do that.'"
Instead, Lisa packed up her daughter's possessions and told her to go away. "[It was] one of the saddest moments of my entire life," Nikki says. "She put me on the bus, and it absolutely broke my heart."
Alamo allowed Lisa to give Nikki $50 and a bus ticket. "I went all over the country for about three months trying to find somewhere to stay," she says.
Today, Lisa is no longer a member of Alamo's church, and looking back, she says she should have done something to protect her daughter. "I believe I was out of my mind to let it happen like that," Lisa says.
