Johnnie Winnell, I just don't understand why would anyone want to hurt a child let alone their grandchild. As for the church member saying he mad one mistake. He made more then one mistake.

I had my suspicions a few years ago, when I saw him and a girl being to affectionate towards one another. No papa and grandchild should EVER be that close to one another!!! I'm sure it was her fault and I just heard on the radio this morning that it did happen while she was sleeping. It's pathetic and the fact that a member of his church said that it was a mistake and basically shouldn't be judged for it, or however he worded it, has got to be thinking its ok BUT IT'S NOT!!!! What if Johnny did that to his 14 yr old granddaughter???? I guess that's when it MIGHT become a problem with that guy!!!! I hate that the girl has to go through this but I'm ecstatic that he is jail for it!!!! My heart goes out to his wife, son & his granddaughter!!! I hope he burns for what he has put his wife and disabled ( let me remind you) son through!! She has been through a lot and then he has to be stupid and do this!!!! WHY???????

Wait and see, church members and other religious types will "rationalize" some sort of "god driven" excuse...like its a test, or the "devil" made him do it... It's just plain sick. There are plenty of greasy looking preachers that put on a big show and even more people that give them money!

First let me say that there is NO excuse for what he did. Do I personally think that he can get forgiveness for this? NOPE....... But that is my opinion I think anyone that does this has denied the faith and worse than an infadel. The bible teaches that if you hurt one of his little ones you should have a mill stone tied around your neck and cast into the sea.
Another thing must run in the family his Uncle was arrested for the same thing on April the 1st. He is in one of the other regonial jails. Wander how many more there are in that family?

His wife is a wonderful, Christian woman. She has suffered much through the years. I always thought a lot of him too. I never would have dreamed this could happen. Now, I'm disgusted, disappointed and just mad. I hope he has a lot of time to think of the damage he has cause this poor little girl. As far as his brothers and sisters, I thought he was adopted. He was always such a better person than any of them. At least I thought. Winnell blood runs deep. I pray for Diane and little Johnnie and HER grand daughters. I know she love them and would have protected them had she known.

kinda ironic that the news interviewed pat Strickland about the winnel case. she allowed her own brother to molest her own daughter for years until a neighbor found out and threatened to call the law. as a matter of fact most people from around there know that that road has been a haven for child molesters.
