The Cell Phone Bible, Part V

Idea courtesy of apostate, who found the 'What if...?' text in his Facebook feed. If you're coming in late, you can start at Part I.

V. The Law and the Prophets
Judge Henry Whittaker looked at Detective William Craven and frowned. "Let me see if I understand this. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ himself, told you that this little girl was being abused by her father, and that the father keeps photos and video in a toolbox in his garage." Is the Messiah a mandated reporter? The thought was slightly hysterical. Could this really be happening?

The Detective nodded. "That's correct, your honor."

Judge Whittaker fell silent, and tried to get his thoughts under control. He considered opening his Bible, but decided against it. Detective Craven had received a complaint, from someone who had no personal grudge or malice against the accused. That was enough to satisfy Probable Cause. There would be evidence - Judge Whittaker didn't doubt that. And if they needed anything more to get a conviction, no doubt the Almighty would provide...

"All right," he said. "We'll get the search warrant ready."
