Former minister collapses after convicted of sex acts

BELLE GLADE, FL (WFLX) - A former Belle Glade minister is convicted of sex acts with teens; then, moments later, he was escorted out of the courtroom on a stretcher.

Sixty-four-year-old James Richard Harris was found guilty Thursday on six counts of sex crimes with teens.

After the verdict, Harris tried to swallow pills. Deputies then tackled him and cleared the courtroom.

Harris will remain in jail until his sentencing on October 5.
