Killer of Brian Brinson, former Oregon cult member and sex offender … – OregonLive


The second of three youths charged in the 2010 robbery and murder of a former Clackamas County cult member and sex offender was sentenced Thursday in Texas to 15 years in prison.
A Lubbock judge accepted a plea deal from 20-year-old Devante Jones in connection with the slaying of 52-year-old Brian Brinson, who was shot to death on Dec. 18, 2010, while Jones and two others were robbing him.
Brinson was a former member of the Ecclesia Athletic Association, an athletic group based in a Sandy farmhouse in the 1980s that claimed to train inner-city children for sporting events such as the Olympics. Brinson was convicted in connection with the 1988 beating death of 8-year-old Dayna Broussard, daughter of the cult's founder, Eldridge J. Broussard Jr.

Authorities also found 53 other children in the farmhouse who had been systematically beaten, starved and forced to watch as the girl was flogged to death with hoses.
After spending 12 years in prison on the manslaughter conviction, Brinson was convicted of sexually abusing a 14-year-old boy in a department store dressing room in 2002 in Oregon. After that prison term, Brinson moved to Texas.
One of Jones' co-defendants, 18-year-old Zeven Sanders, told police they planned to beat Brinson because he inappropriately touched the then-16-year-old Sanders in a car near his high school, according to the Lubbock Avalanche Journal newspaper. Sanders faces trial Dec. 17.
A third defendant, Arenn Davis, pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to 25 years in prison in April.
