Top US producer, Jonathan David Brown, facing imprisonment.

ONE OF America's top CCM producers has been convicted of helping two men avoid prosecution, for a shooting at a drive-in. Jonathan David Brown, who has produced albums for Twila Paris, Petra and the Gaither Trio, has been tried for helping Leanard William Armstrong and a juvenile Damien Patton avoid prosecution for the drive-in shooting at the West End Synagogue in Nashville.

Included in the evidence confiscated from Brown's home were signed membership cards for the Ku Klux Klan. Brown is a follower of the Christian Identity Faith, a racist group which claims the white race, not the Jews, are the direct descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. CR
