Earlier this year, TRPWL reported, Garrett and Shelley Lubben moved way out in the country: to Springville, California in Tulare County.
As their sham nonprofit Pink Cross Foundation has continually been exposed by Michael Whiteacre and others, the Lubbens downsized and lowered their profile, but trouble still followed them.
On September 8, 2015, Garrett, who was recently named a pastor, was arrested at their new home for domestic violence and charged with Infliction of Corporal Injury on a Spouse/Cohabitant. He bailed out the following day.
It’s hard to imagine Garrett doing such a thing… sure, he used to be a meth dealer (and addict) in Chino, Calif., but for years we’ve heard Shelley refer to him as “Mr. Wonderful” and “a godly man”. We know he’s a liar — but a meek one, as this video shows:
But then on October 8 of this year, the Tulare County Sheriffs were dispatched once again to the Lubben homestead, and Garrett was carted off with a fresh set of charges relating to violation of a court order regarding the the Sept 8 domestic violence charge, and resisting arrest. His new bond was set at $50,000. That’s a substantial bond.
Lubben’s father Glenn, now deceased, had reportedly also been a pastor, but “fell to sexual sin”, Shelley has said.
Garrett Lubben was arraigned on November 3 for the September DV charge in the Porterville division of the Tulare County Superior Court. His pre-trial date is January 26, and his trial date is set for January 28.
He has yet to be arraigned on the resisting arrest charge.
Paperwork from the Court should be available very soon, and we will publish it as it comes in. We look forward to covering this case in depth.
