Tallahassee, FL (November 19, 2018) – A Tallahassee pastor is under arrest for grand theft and fraud after he allegedly stole money from two parishioners on Friday. He was identified as Julien Williams, who is the pastor at Abundant Living Faith Ministries. Williams made acquaintances with two businessmen and agreed to help them manage their business. Both men attended Abundant Living. Williams, however, took advantage of them and obtained information so that he could gain control of their bank accounts, write and sign checks without their permission, and withdraw money behind their backs. Now, he is facing grand theft after he stole more than $20,000 from them and used their IDs without consent, as well as various other crimes.
