Prophetess Juanita Bynum is cooling her heels in a Dallas County jail today after being picked up on a “capias warrant” on Thursday, April 18.
According to online records. Bynum, 54, was booked into the Dallas (Texas) County jail last night on civil charges. A capias warrant is usually issued when a judge wants to compel a defendant to do something, such as when someone loses a civil case and they failed to pay a judgment against them. In general, capias warrants are not criminal in nature.
In 2010, Bynum, who considers herself a prophetess, doctor, gospel singer and televangelist, fought a lawsuit brought by former Def Jam Vice President of A&R, J.E. Jones, who said Bynum stole a song he wrote entitled, “Soul Cry (Oh, Oh, Oh).”
In 2007, Bynum divorced her husband Thomas Weeks III after he beat her in the parking lot of an Atlanta hotel.
Bynum is famous for her “No more sheets” message which catapulted her over into celebrity status through Bishop T.D. Jakes and the best-selling novel entitled the same.
