Fraud In Deeper Life Church As Senior Pastor Sentenced to Prison

 A Pastor of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Ifeanyichukwu Eric Abakporo has been sentenced to six years imprisonment by a federal court in New York.
The former Brooklyn-based civil attorney will be spending time in a United States prison in a case of defrauding banks, mortgage lenders, property owners, and property buyers.
Mr. Abakporo was sentenced on Wednesday, May 28 along with his co-defendant, Latanya Pierce, who received a lighter, 30-month sentence.
They were both found guilty of the federal charges of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and bank transfer fraud, involving at least two mortgage property lenders.

Abakporo will most likely be deported to Nigeria after he is done serving his sentence, with the likelihood of
a three-year supervisory probation release waved.

The presiding judge in the federal case, US District Judge Shira A. Scheindlin immediately remanded the accused into custody.

His wife and two children wept openly in the courtroom as he was being taken away in handcuffs.

The legal fate of Abakporo and Pierce was never in doubt.  Both were convicted in 2013, in a wide-ranging series of illegal transactions in New York City defrauding banks, mortgage lenders, property owners, and property buyers over a nine-year stretch, dating back to 2003.
