The flashy Brooklyn bishop Lamor Miller Whitehead was found guilty on Monday of several charges, including lying to the FBI and stealing from parishioners.
Fraud victim Paula Anderson is still out nearly $100,000 that she wired to the bishop years ago.
"This is pretty much where everything happened...it's like everything coming back all at once,” said Anderson. “
Whitehead stated that he was arrested and found guilty of his charges because he wouldn’t serve as an FBI informant about Mayor Eric Adams.
"And just because I wasn't going to be a federal informant against the mayor of New York, the FBI said they were going to make my life a living hell, and that's what you're seeing,” said Whitehead. “I stand on my innocence. Innocent of all charges."
Paula’s husband, Rasheed Anderson, met Whitehead in 2020. Rasheed says that “he would tell me he loved me all the time, like a father figure” and that Whitehead even helped him purchase a home.
Court documents accused Whitehead of spending the $90,000 that Paula Anderson wired him on car payments and items from Louis Vuitton and Foot Locker.
