“During pre-trial proceedings in the divorce case, Thursday, Sherrill agreed to limit testimony
on Armstrong’s sexual conduct but to allow evidence on the finances of the Pasadena, Calif. Based church.
In the divorce proceedings, Armstrong’s lawyers had sought to limit evidence of a sexual nature but his wife’s attorneys said it was crucial since the church leader alleged Mrs. Armstrong had breached and agreement of love and fidelity.
Louis Deckler, Mrs. Armstrong’s lawyer, said the testimony would explain an “understanding” the couple reached about Armstrong’s “prior incestuous conduct with his daughter for many years.”
Citing Armstrong’s worldwide travel in a $17 million private jet and other examples of a “luxurious lifestyle.” Deckler contended the other side was trying to exclude evidence showing “the vast wealth that Mr. Armstrong personally controls to his own benefit.”
