A state appeals court panel Tuesday upheld a former Saugus resident’s conviction for the September 2011 murder of his girlfriend, whom he met earlier that year at an Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous meeting.
The three-justice panel from California’s 2nd District Court of Appeal rejected the defense’s contention that there were errors in the trial of Eric Allen Earle, including the admission of evidence of uncharged acts of domestic violence against the murder victim, Karla Brada, and his ex-wife.
The appellate court justices noted in their 58-page ruling that there was “overwhelming evidence demonstrating that defendant was intoxicated the night of August 31 to September 1, and that when defendant was intoxicated, he became angry, belligerent, aggressive and threatening, even with law enforcement officers, male friends, nurses, jailers and his mother.
We discern no reasonable probability that the (trial) result would have been different absent evidence of defendant’s prior acts of domestic violence,” the panel found.
Earle was convicted in September 2014 of first-degree murder for the Sept. 1, 2011, asphyxiation of his girlfriend, Karla Brada, who died just two days short of her 32nd birthday. Holly Hill Sunrise Park AA Meetings have Violent Felons.
Brada was found dead inside the condominium she shared with Earle, who maintained she had fallen down the stairs and then come upstairs and shown him some bruises from the fall. He said he awoke to find her dead in bed. AA Daytona Meetings in Holly Hill Park.
Earle is serving a 26-year-to-life prison sentence.
I spent the day on a stage in Venice, CA filming some of the finest VO actors in Hollywood reading public posts written on my www.stop13stepinaa.wordpress.com blog from way back when… till recently. It was mind blowing to hear these actors speak your works …OMG the insanity that is going on in AA it abominable!!!
Many of you reached out to me with your sad tales of rape, controlling sponsors, assault and 13 stepping. I cried when I saw the new trailer for the first time yesterday.
I have spent hundreds of hours with your stories in my head , in my files and on my computer. But now you are all coming to life privately in a cinematic way, to change how the world sees AA with all of the lies and criminal activity as well as the cult aspect is and was captured today on film.
I have one more video that’s about 3 1/2 min long that has more alternatives to AA footage that I will release in January 2014. It has been a long journey, but I do plan to release the film in spring of 2014 and to submit to film festivals worldwide.
NO ONE has EVER made an exposing critical Documentary of Alcoholics Anonymous and people like controversy film so I am sure we will find distribution.
I was surprised how many Actors were also pissed off how one sided this issue is handled to this day!
Hi everyone…I have a new trailer ready and its it up on youtube right now. Please share and feel free to contact me if you want.
Although we are raising money again… I am really posting here for you to see the progress I have made and what the new footage looks like. Please spread the word.
This story is too controversial, untapped and never told. Hollywood loves that sh*t.
We know the truth here. Now the rest of America and the world converted to AA Bullsh*t needs to know it too!

ABOUT THE FILM:
The 13th Step is about the criminal and sexually predatory behavior that occurs systemically in Alcoholics Anonymous. This behavior goes unchecked by A.A’s world headquarters, despite repeated warnings from respect board members and longtime members. This behavior is exacerbated by the systematic sentencing of criminals and sex offenders to AA meetings without the knowledge of the AA members.
