Appeal denied in bad check case against CEO of Sisters in Christ

Posted: Updated:
TYLER (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - The appeal for a Tyler woman who pleaded guilty in the Smith County 241st District Court in August to writing $10,000 in bad checks has been denied by an appeals court in Tyler.

Denetrius Miller Johnson, 47, the founder and CEO of the nonprofit charity Sisters in Christ had been sentenced to a 15 month prison sentence at the time she pleaded to the charges in Judge Jack Skeen Jr.'s court.
Prosecutor Jason Parrish said that once the 241st District Court receives the order from the appeals court, that a warrant will be issued for Ms. Johnson's arrest and that she will be arrested.

Ms. Johnson claimed that Hollywood actress Halle Berry was going to appear at a fundraiser for her organization. Ms. Berry was never scheduled to appear.
