Port Arthur church obtains TRO against pastor

| September 12, 2011

The First Sixth Street Baptist Church in Port Arthur obtained a temporary restraining order against its pastor, Donald Toussaint, who allegedly hid his criminal past and now stands accused of misusing church funds.

David Joseph, chairman of the church board, filed the TRO application Sept. 8 in Jefferson County District Court.

That same day, Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, granted the request. A hearing for a permanent injunction will be held at a later date.

According to the petition, Toussaint, who changed his name from Abram to Toussaint after being convicted of robbery in 1982, was terminated as pastor by the church board on Aug. 20.

However, Toussaint refuses to leave the property and gracefully step down, the board claims.
