Buck returned to the courtroom Tuesday, where he identified himself as a pastor at Terry’s church. A group of roughly a dozen people also appeared to be there in support of Terry. He spoke as a character witness for Terry, saying the boy was in his care for five and a half months before OCS returned the infant to his mother’s care.
“I believe that they plan to wrap up their other portion of their OCS investigation here soon, completely showing that, once again, she was a good mother to her son,” said Buck.
When asked after the hearing whether seeing images of the girls’ bruised, scarred and emaciated bodies changed his mind, Buck said no. Buck declined to say which church he serves as a pastor, however he is listed as the pastor of Agape Fellowship on the Palmer church’s website.
