A brazen upstate Army chaplain made a British woman his sex toy to "spice" up his boring marriage and threatened to kill her when she wanted to break away, officials said yesterday.
Capt. John Lau, 50, told a military court he took Amanda Tyler into his Fort Drum home, turned her into his "second wife," "married" her in a mock Niagara Falls service, and took her to live with his real wife and family. At his court-martial Thursday, Lau was convicted of adultery and making a threat. But Tyler, 34, described the ordained Southern Baptist minister as a sexual sadist who controlled and terrified her. She charged he even wanted her to work as a prostitute to pay for schooling.
He was sentenced to 14 months in military prison, but under the terms of his plea bargain, he will serve only five months.
Lau was also stripped of his rank and dismissed from the Army, with all pay and allowances forfeited.
Ironically, Lau was featured in the base newspaper last June in an article about the virtues of a marriage retreat arranged by the Army at Lake Placid.
"It is important to help them ease marital issues so they can better focus on the mission," he told The Fort Drum Blizzard.
do as i say not as i do. i believe thats the 14th commandment. its right after #13 dont swim for an hour after eating and #15 always wipe front to back. i'm sure the southeren baptists will be glad to have him back in their fold. wouldnt this guy make a great politcian. he could rail against the sins like adultery and gays while buggering his teen male intern. hes almost a perfect christian. maybe he interpreted jesus as pimping out mary magdalene to pay for schooling. you know you can read alot into those bible verses. maybe we all missed it.
well i have to run. i need to go give some money to the church to bail out some more priests
