Prior to the time of his arrest, Gilyard was forced to leave a Dallas-area church after he confessed to some of the claims made in 1991, Gilyard has defended herself against several civil suits, including one that he ultimately decided — in a grief-stricken widow, who accuses of him of raping and impregnating her during a session in accordance with Florida and federal court records.

Gilyard, in the video, obtained by an investigation conducted by the Houston Chronicle, he said that he saw himself as the one “legitimate,” but that he was sorry for her misconduct.

“I stand before you tonight a broken man, to know that in the past, I have sinned against God and against my family, and for you,” he said.
