Trial: Man denies claims of Haiti child sex abuse
By JENNIFER KAY, Associated Press 3:30 p.m.Feb. 26, 2013

MIAMI A Michigan man on trial in federal court denied allegations Tuesday that he sexually abused Haitian children at a residential center he operated in the poor Caribbean country.

Matthew Andrew Carter of Brighton, Mich., faces five counts of traveling from Florida to Haiti for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity with minors, along with one count of attempting child sex tourism.

Carter first took the stand Friday in Miami federal court. He resumed his testimony Tuesday.

Carter, who also went by the names "William Charles Harcourt" and "Bill Carter," ran the Morning Star Center, first in Croix-des-Bouquets and then in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, from 1995 until 2011. His attorneys have described him as a military veteran who became a missionary and wanted to lift a generation of Haitian children out of poverty through education and Bible study.

1. How come it's OK for Rush Limbaugh, but not Mr. Carter?

Lady Liberty's blindfold is on crooked.
