Authorities said the 44-year-old bishop fabricated his bank records to make it appear that an LLC he controlled had more than $2 million when the account actually had less than $10.
Additionally, the feds are also alleging that he created a fake bank account in 2019 as part of the scheme to obtain the mortgage loan.
Whitehead made headlines last year when video of him being robbed at gunpoint in front of his congregation surfaced on social media. He was arrested by federal agents and slammed with four charges in December 2022.
He also was hit with an additional count of wire fraud related to alleged fabricated information linked to the LLC.
“We are going to be fighting those allegations,” his attorney, Dawn Florio, said Wednesday. “Lamor Whitehead will be pleading not guilty when he is arraigned on the … indictment and denies those charges.”
