I'm glad that I'm not the only one. I thought he was dead, too. Unless maybe he has a son by the same name?
Following a 16-month Federal grand jury probe, Bakker was indicted in 1988 on eight counts of mail fraud, 15 counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy. In 1989, after a five-week trial which began on August 28 in Charlotte, the jury found him guilty on all 24 counts, and Judge Robert Daniel Potter sentenced him to 45 years in federal prison and a $500,000 fine.:52
He served time in the Federal Medical Center, Rochester, in Rochester, Minnesota, sharing a cell with activist Lyndon LaRouche and skydiver Roger Nelson.

No star, no flag for you, doofus.
The Business Standard News is a satirical site designed to poke fun at the absurdity of the modern-day news cycle. The stories are outlandish, but reality is so strange nowadays they could be true.
This belongs in the JOKES forum, NOT the news forum.
I'm not fan of Bakker, but get your facts straight. Otherwise, you are the one who ends up looking like an idiot.
Quite right - completely missed the satirical nature of het site - mea culpa
