JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Pastor Tom Neal responded to the video Clay County Sheriff's Office released that centered around his son and Co-Pastor of Berean Baptist Church Greg Neal.
First Coast News has viewed this video a number of times. Here are some of the key points. The tape begins with a man walking out of the room away from camera. Then, the sheriff's office blackens most of the screen as the victims apparently enters the room.
When the black is lifted, Pastor Greg Neal walks in, removes a book that appears to be obstructing part of the view, placing it on the table in front of him. Then he leaves the room and apparently more young ladies enter the room to change. Then, the video goes to black, courtesy of the sheriff's office.
When the picture fully returns, so does the pastor, sitting down behind his desk, but the camera moves, when it is out of the pastor's reach.
Pastor Tom Neal said, "After seeing this video, I am more convinced than ever that my son is innocent and that there is more to this story than has been told, and I want to assure you that we are investigating, we will get to the bottom of this and there is much to say in the coming days."
