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 and not criminal in nature.
In 2010, Bynum, who considers herself a prophetess, doctor, gospel singer and televangelist, fought a lawsuit 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).” Source: Sandra Rose
