ATLANTA (AP) — The husband of televangelist Juanita Bynum pleaded guilty Tuesday to assaulting her, was sentenced to three years' probation and then turned to her and apologized.

Thomas W. Weeks III, a minister known to his followers as Bishop Weeks, turned after his sentencing to address Bynum, who sat in the second row of the Fulton County courtroom gallery.

"I want to apologize to my wife for all she's had to go through," he said.

Bynum nodded in response and quietly thanked him. The two later walked out of the courthouse together.
