Sentencing date is set for Monday, August 2, 1999 after Judge Keeton declares Sweeney "Guilty" in a 32 page written opinion.
Sweeney's closing statement quotes Scripture: John 12:38-41
This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet:
"Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?"
For this reason they could not believe, because , as Isaiah says elsewhere:
He has blinded their eyes and deadened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn---and I would heal them."
Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus' glory and spoke about him.
"THANKS BE TO GOD".
