The Lord will give this couple justice one day, in the meantime I make Estevam Hernandes Filho and Sonia Haddad Moraes Hernandes today's fifth Knucklehead winners of the Day.
Estevam Hernandes Filho and his wife, Sonia Haddad Moraes Hernandes, must serve an additional five months of house arrest in the U.S. and pay $60,000 in fines under a sentence imposed by U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno.
Hernandes is to surrender Monday to begin serving his prison term. His wife will serve her house arrest term first at their home in Boca Raton and then report to prison Jan. 21. Both must also serve a probation period after their 10-month combined sentences are up.
The couple lead Brazil's Reborn in Christ Church, which was founded in 1986 and now claims hundreds of thousands of followers. Brazilian authorities are seeking the couple's extradition on charges of looting parishioners' donations for their own use.
