“Bishop” Anthony Owens, one of the original Lovefraud case studies, was back in the news last week.
Perhaps you remember Bishop Owens. He married eight women, and divorced none of them. His last wife found out about his multiple marriages and turned him into the police. Owens was convicted of one count of bigamy and spent 17 months in prison. He was paroled in November 2005.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Owens is back in jail because he violated his probation. He left the state of Georgia to re-establish his traveling ministry. And while he was traveling, he was proposing to more women.
The newspaper reported that at least four women claim Owens has proposed to them since he got out of jail— Betty Dixon, Karen Ward, Darlene Keeler and Cheryl Selmon. Owens told several of the women that God had sent him to them.
