Reality TV Pastor Accused Of Stealing From Dead Church Member (Audio Receipts)

You all love your pastors and in some of your eyes
they can’t do no wrong. Some of these pastors are
just as bad as these politicians and these predators.

Bishop Charles Ellis who is a cast member on the reality tv
show Preachers of Detroit is caught in a scandal.

Bishop Ellis has been accused of conning the granddaughter of
one of his deceased church members out of her

Here is how the scam went down: Bishop Ellis coerced the deceased church member to reverse mortgage her home and somehow he was able to get his money on the funds.

What is a reverse mortgage:

An financial agreement in which a homeowner relinquishes
equity in their home in exchange for regular payments,
typically to supplement retirement income. “unlike traditional mortgages, which decline as you pay down the loan, reverse mortgages rise over time as interest on the loan accrues”.

It is reported that the granddaughter who wishes to remain
anonymous gave details of the scandal in a recording which
included herself, Bishop Ellis, his attorney and his secretary.

You can hear her say that all of them were responsible for keeping
her from getting her deceased grandmothers home and tried to
hide the fact that it was left to her. Janky.

This is a quote from the recording (and yes we are providing
a copy of the recording so you can hear for yourself)

“Together, the three ensured that I never knew about the
trust my grandmother created in 1997 and how she had an
insurance policy that her trust was directed to use to pay
off her debt (including the reverse mortgage she took out
and gave to the church),” she said. “So not only did she
give the church the money from her reverse mortgage, after
she died, the Good Bishop, working with my aunt, and granny’s
attorney to keep me from finding the trust and deed conveying
the house to me. This was the most disheartening of it all.”

The granddaughter went on to explain that she considered
Bishop Ellis a “father figure” and could not believe he would
do this to here.

She says “I’m sure money is his only God. As long as he can
live in a multi-million dollar house with an indoor swimming
pool, he can care less about the generational wealth that my
grandparents intended me to have via a $120,000 house.

Bishop Charles Ellis is the pastor at Greater Grace Temple City
of David in Detroit Michigan.

As always there are three sides to every story: her side, his
side and the truth. The audio recording may be the nail in
the coffin. You can find a link to the audio in the description
section of this video. Listen for yourself then you decide.

Gila Bend, AZ – The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has released body camera from the deputy whose truck was stolen by a naked woman in Gila Bend.

The video shows the deputy in the truck when he spotted the suspect, which MCSO later identified Lisa Luna, without clothes on Jan. 5.

The deputy gets a blanket but left the truck unlocked and the woman then goes into the driver’s seat.

She drives off as the deputy opens the door and tries to stop her.

A passer-by then pulled into the gas station and the driver let the deputy get in and follow the woman.

Luna was later arrested near Eloy after a 70-mile pursuit.

What are “Bait Purse Stings” in Las Vegas casinos? Nevada theft laws.

Top Las Vegas criminal defense attorney discusses “bait purse stings” in Nevada.

Bait purse stings are very common in Las Vegas, Nevada. Metro police will place a cash-filled pocketbook in a conspicuous location (usually in a Nevada casino) to make it look as though someone left it there by accident. The police then wait and watch to see if someone comes by and takes it for him/herself.

If someone takes the pocketbook, the Nevada police treat it as a theft under NRS 205.0832(d) and will arrest the person. Often the police will wait until the person tries to leave the casino since that arguably shows intent that the person intended to steal the pocketbook. And sometimes the person says something incriminating when caught such as, “I’m sorry” instead of invoking his/her 5th Amendment right to stay silent.

If the person gets charged with theft in Nevada, the prosecutors then have the burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the person truly intended to steal the pocketbook. A Nevada criminal defense attorney would try to show that the person was meaning to return the pocketbook to its rightful owner. The typical evidence in Nevada bait purse sting cases is surveillance video showing the person taking the purse.

The Nevada penalties for taking a bait purse depend on the value of the purse and cash inside the purse. If the cash amounts to less than $650, it is a misdemeanor in Nevada carrying up to 6 months in jail and/or up to $1,000 in fines. If the value is at least $650 but less than $3,500, it is a felony carrying 1 – 5 years in Nevada State Prison and possibly a fine of up to $10,000. Otherwise, the penalty is 1 – 10 years in Nevada State Prison and maybe up to $10,000 in fines.
