“He (Michael Winans jr.) wants to bring this to a speedy and just conclusion. Winans wants to make sure everyone knows that other family members weren’t involved in the scheme.”
The Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation issued a cease and desist order against Winans in 2010. The order claimed he used his connections to Detroit churches to lure investors into the scheme.
Winans is a famous member of one of gospel music’s most prominent families. He is the grandson of Delores “Mom” Winans and David “Pop” Winans Sr. He is the son of Michael Winans Sr., a member of The Winans, a quartet of brothers. His uncle, Marvin Winans, gave the eulogy at Whitney Houston’s funeral. Michael Winans Jr. is expected to make his next court appearance in eight days.
