Bling Bling Bishop Sent To Prison After Defrauding Elderly Parishioner Of Retirement Fund

Lamor Whitehead, also known as the “Bling Bling Bishop,” has been convicted of fraud-related charges in New York City. The convict-turned-preacher finds himself back on the wrong side of the law after a series of bad decisions. Whitehead has already served time for identity theft. Once he got out, he “turned his life around” and started a church. Unfortunately, the church became a vessel for Whitehead to commit more crimes.

The Bling Bling Bishop defrauded an elderly parishioner of his church from her retirement fund. He spent the $90,000 she gave him on designer clothing, shoes, and car notes. Whitehead was also convicted of attempting to extort a local businessman out of a $500,000 loan. He also lied to FBI agents who were conducting an investigation into him. All of the convictions have him facing “decades” in prison.

Whitehead rose to the level of national attention after his Brooklyn-based church was robbed on live-stream. The Bishop says the robbers took one million dollars worth of jewelry from his wife and himself.
