Michael Winans Jr. of the famous Gospel singing family was a part of a financial scheme, that made $8 million by swindling church members out of millions earlier this year.
Winans was sentenced to 14 years in prison, which will begin May 9.
Winans said, “There have been some things said about me that are just not true. I was charged with wire fraud and on Feb. 27, 2013 sentenced to nearly 14 years in prison. There are numerous stories out there that claim I stole millions of dollars from innocent people, that is not true. I’m not blameless and I’m willing to take responsibility for my mistakes, but I’m not willing to take responsibility for what others did in my name.”
Winans pleded guilty to selling bogus Saudi Arabian oil bonds.
