Bishop Eddie Long Accuser: Drug Arrest Stems From Sex Abuse

Whether it’s a bad excuse or a good reason, Jamal Parris, one of the  men who accused Bishop Eddie Long of sexual abuse, is blaming that abuse for his use of drugs.

Parris was arrested in June when Miami police found a gun and drugs on him during a routine traffic stop.

Although he was sentenced to a year of probation after pleading guilty to possession with intent to distribute marijuana, he claims he only used the drugs to deal with his emotional pain from what the Bishop did to him.

“You caught me with bud? Look at the sign of sexual abuse victims. What’s the very first sign on any website you’ll see? Alcoholism drug abuse,” Parris said.
