Lisa Biron, a Manchester, N.H., lawyer affiliated with an antigay group, is accused of transporting an underage girl to Canada, coercing her into having sex, and filming it.
Biron was arrested on Friday during a hearing to determine whether she would be brought up on charges related to child porn found on her computer. FBI agents swooped into the hearing and arrested Biron on more serious charges pertaining to the Canadian incident. Biron was slapped with the following federal charges: transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, possession of child pornography, and five counts of sexual exploitation of children.
Biron's trouble keeps deepening: Police found 200 rounds of ammunition at Biron's home, she allegedly threatened the person who informed police about the pornography, and two witnesses claim they saw her with marijuana, ecstasy, and cocaine.
The Concord Monitor reports that Biron is affiliated with the Alliance Defending Freedom, a self-described "servant ministry building an alliance to keep the door open for the spread of the Gospel by transforming the legal system and advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family." The group's website has an entire section devoted to its fight against marriage equality and calls a federal judge's decision against California's Prop. 8 "a dangerous decision that could ultimately threaten your religious freedom and the democratic process.
Biron also recently served on the board of directors at Manchester's Mount Zion Christian Schools.
