As NewsOne previously reported, Winans was sentenced to 13 years in prison after pleading guilty to defrauding more than 1200 investors. He was also ordered to pay $4.8 million in restitution to his victims. Many of his victims said the singer used his Christian faith and family name to take advantage of them.
In the newly released video, Winans claims, however, that he has returned 80 percent of the restitution money to his victims. Moreover, he says “Much of the money that was collected by others that was supposedly going to me never even came to me. I didn’t even get the money.”
