Whitehead allegedly persuaded one of his parishioners to deposit about $90,000 of her retirement assets between April 2020 and July 2021. 

The bishop agreed to this on the condition that he would assist her in finding housing and utilize a portion of the funds for investments in his real estate ventures.

Instead, the indictment against Whitehead claims he spent the money on himself.

The indictment asserts that in another incident, Whitehead coerced an unnamed businessman into giving over substantial amounts of cash.

Whitehead texted the victim, “I am a man of integrity, and you will not lose,” but the prosecutors claimed he spent the money on opulent items.
