Bishop Thug Lovin’

Thomas Weeks III has pleaded guilty to assault charges for whooping his wife’s tail in a hotel parking lot back in August:

Moments after admitting to grabbing his wife by the throat, throwing her down and kicking her on the pavement of a hotel parking lot, Thomas Weeks III turned to Juanita Bynum and apologized to her in open court. The couple then walked out of the Fulton County courthouse together and signaled that their relationship may not yet be over. Weeks pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in Fulton County Superior Court on Tuesday, and was sentenced to three years’ probation. Under the terms of the plea agreement, Weeks must also undergo violence and anger counseling and complete 200 hours of community service that cannot be church-related.

“They are in communication and working on their relationship and the status of their marriage.At the end of the hearing, Weeks turned to Bynum, who had been seated in the second row of the courtroom.”I want to apologize to my wife for all she’s had to go through,” he said. Bynum stood as he addressed her, nodded in response and quietly thanked him. As another condition of his probation, Weeks must have no violent contact with his wife, though the two were allowed to resume communications, which previously had been barred. Wasting no time, the couple appeared on the steps of the courthouse.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said during a brief press conference that it was a personal plea from Bynum initiated by Weeks’ grandfather that convinced prosecutors not to pursue jail time for Weeks.

“Many people in her situation would’ve been asking for him to be put in jail,” Howard said, calling Bynum’s request courageous. “I don’t believe my husband is a criminal,” she said. “I don’t believe he is a man who deserves to be put in jail.”According to a police report, Bynum told officers that on Aug. 22, Weeks “choked her, pushed her down, kicked and stomped her … until a bellman pulled him off of her.”

Weeks initially pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault and making terroristic threats.

That domestic violence is crazy and if it happens once, it will usually happen again. Hopefully, in this case it won’t but Bishop Weeks looks like he might still be ’bout it.

    After his talk about “i don’t how she got the mark on her neck”, to then go say he did it i guess the threat of jail can do that to you. Both these people had no class about this situation. She was busy talking about God while making and taking many interviews selling her story far and wide. Only God knows

    gods people are getting arrested the world is coming to cameras everywhere

    wow!!! she is a truly strong woman but i just KNOW this guy is like the BIGGEST hypocrite the world has ever seen… i dont mean to down the guy but DAMN!!! with everybody talkin about the way the church is heading, this definitely doesn’t help..

  • ewww

    I don’t think that she made a good decision. He didn’t slap her (minor offense), but instead choked her, pushed her to the ground, and stomped her. Not to mention the fact that it was in public for the world to see. If she wants to do the Christian thing she should ask that his sentence be minimal, but not take him back!

    So here’s the deal, I used to work full time in event photography. I was apart of a 6 man crew responsible for shooting their wedding back on Holy Thursday 4 or 5 years ago on Wall Street here in NYC.

    Vera Wang personally made her dress, cake was 15 feet tall, It was at I believe the Regent Hotel if I am not mistaken in a ballroom with 800 people in it. Everything was just so ridiculously over the top and pretentious to say the least.

    The most interesting part of the wedding itself aside from airing with Wink Martindale as the host or whatever the guys name was from the Newlywed Game over the prayer network, not even the fact that Juanita herself was over 2 hours late getting ready but the fact she made it a point to show and tell everyone who would listen in the ballroom that every woman should have 2 diamond wedding rings, matching ones like hers, 14 carats she kept saying over and over, one for each hand to see how much your man loves you. I won’t lie and say they didn’t pay upfront and ontime, but it’s amazing to see how even the mighty have fallen, even those who exploit the name of Jesus Christ for their own personal gain. BTW I’m an Atheist.

    I would have divorced her and took her for some of that church loot. She seems like she could be a hand full.

    Hooray Bishop Weeks… I feel that everybody needs their ass kicked at least one time. Now if the sht is recurring and you ain’t wit it… then something needs to be done to stop it.

    Some women are instigators and want to fight just as much or even more than men do and know that have the law on their side and use it to their advantage.

    I heard him on a few interviews including Wendy Williams. I’m shocked that he plead guilty. Juanita isn’t perfect either. She did accuse her first husband of abuse and was in a mental institution. I’m thinking that she came to him about the junk he has on her. He was looking forward to the truth coming out in court. Just maybe she didn’t want the truth to come out on her. He was saying some stuff about her in those interviews. How she didn’t have a relationship with his daughter, drugs. The husband in him agreed not to expose her. I guess. Before I get cyber-jumped, domestic violence is wrong whether the victim is male or female.

  • lisalisa

    SHe is stupid to take him back!

    When will Christians and non Christians alike, begin to realize how fake these TV preachers are. Send them your money so you can be blessed by God, and they can be blessed with a new Rolls Royce.

  • uptowngirl

    Put that where?..Back There!!! If that fool did that to her in public I could just imagine what goes down in private.

  • Submerge

    NOW THIS IS A DAMN PUBLICITY STUNT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Set up from the beginning. They will get back together, there relationship will be “stronger than ever” because they had lost their way before and they will sell this crap as their testimonial. Wait for the book….its coming. Not that I’m cynical or anything. 🙂

  • uptowngirl

    I heard him on Wendy too. All soft talking and ish. Saying the allegations weren’t true. Whateva.

  • curvy396

    This is not the first time he went up side her head and it won’t be the last. I don’t feel bad for her any more.

  • Darth Paul
