Pastor Earl Carter’s attacks against Bishop Charles Blake’s character land him in jail and in legal hot water

Article By EEW Magazine News

Share Pastor Earl Carter has been viciously going after Bishop Charles Blake since 2015, slandering his name and making false accusations.

Finally, Carter's reckless actions against the pastor of West Angeles Church of God in Christ (COGIC), one of the largest congregations in America, backfired in a major way.

At a March 8 hearing in Orlando, Florida, Carter was held in contempt of court, remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal and sent to jail.

This is the culmination of a case that started back when Blake filed a defamation lawsuit alleging that Carter created Youtube videos with the intent to, among other things, damage his internationally-respected reputation. Over the span of two years, Carter uploaded scores of videos attacking Blake.

In an ideal world, brothers in Christ would not attack each other, but such is not always the case.

In November 2016, Blake won his defamation lawsuit against Carter. In response to that victory, Blake's attorney, Ulysses Henderson said, "We anticipate that the federal court in Orlando will shortly be issuing a final and formal permanent injunction that will require the take-down of all of Earl Carter's defamatory Internet videos, and will perpetually prevent Mr. Carter from repeating any of the outrageously false, utterly baseless and despicable claims he has made about Bishop Blake."

As anticipated, soon thereafter, Judge Dalton of the Orlando court, issued a permanent injunction against Carter.

Despite losing the lawsuit, being ordered to remove the offending videos and to cease all malicious comments regarding Blake, Carter continued to upload defamatory videos and boast of his intention to defy the court order. In fact, in the videos, Carter called Judge Dalton disparaging names and accused Dalton of violating his First Amendment rights in ordering the permanent injunction.

At the March 8 hearing, Dalton found Carter was in contempt of court. Carter remained in jail until the videos were removed.

However, Carter's legal woes are far from over. He now faces the possibility of a criminal prosecution due to his continual and flagrant prior acts of contempt throughout this case.

Carter is no stranger to arrest and incarceration. Public documents show that Carter was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon in 1994; Battery in 1995; and as recent as 2008, was charged with Battery (Domestic Violence). Carter was sentenced to prison as a result of a plea deal reducing the Aggravated Assault charge.

Additionally, throughout his Youtube videos, Carter has often confessed of his frequent incarceration during his youth.

 Bishop Charles Blake has yet to publicly speak to this matter.

But in the past, a spokesperson stated, "Bishop Blake would have preferred not to file a lawsuit against Mr. Carter, but the only way to have his defamatory, untruthful and hurtful videos removed is by court order."
