Juanita Bynum’s Husband Thomas Weeks Turns Himself In

Eurweb.com reported earlier that Bishop Thomas W. Weeks III had been charged with felony aggravated assault and making terrorist threats against his wife, televangelist Juanita Bynum, after he allegedly stomped and choked her in a hotel parking lot and threatened to kill her.

The Atlanta Constitution reported this morning that Weeks has surrendered to authorities.  

Thomas W. Weeks, a 54-year-old bishop who shares an international ministry with his estranged wife Juanita Bynum, surrendered to Atlanta police Friday on charges that he assaulted his wife.

Bynum’s husband has retained two lawyers: famed defense attorney Ed Garland to represent him in the criminal case; and Louis Tesser, to take care of the domestic matter.Garland has in the past represented NFL star Ray Lewis in his murder trial and millionaire James Sullivan, who ordered the murder of his socialite wife.

“He very much regrets what happened and said he’s sorry for what it’s worth,” Tesser said Thursday night.

Weeks loves his wife, Tesser said, and “he hopes he doesn’t wind up getting a divorce.”

“Anytime you tell a person, ‘I’m going to kill you,’ that moves it up to a felony,” Campbell said. And her bruises were serious enough to merit felony aggravated assault charges against Weeks.

In a comment posted on her MySpace page, the evangelist said, “I am currently recovering from all of my injuries and resting well … this, too, shall pass.”

“People are interpreting it to mean the two of them were fighting,” Malone said. “They were not fighting. She was assaulted.”
