Where to begin? Sailor is serving a 63-month sentence in federal prison in West Virginia. He was charged in December 2007 after offering to launder $375,000 in “drug money” that actually came from an undercover federal agent.
While he was awaiting sentencing, Sailor defrauded the Greater New Light Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he served as minister, of $250,000. He secretly took out a mortgage on the church and used the money to pay personal expenses.
Sailor had promised federal prosecutors he would cooperate in an ongoing public corruption investigation, whose targets have not been disclosed. But prosecutors said Sailor had blown his credibility and his information, if he had any, would be of little value.
Sailor’s release is scheduled for May 2013.
