Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell turned himself into Louisiana authorities in Shreveport on Thursday and pleaded not guilty to accusations that he and another man defrauded investors out of $3.4 million.
He remains free on an unsecured $250,000 bond. Both he and another man, Gregory Smith pleaded not guilty to the charges. They had to surrender their passports and agreed to appear in court and not to travel internationally. They were also ordered not to have any contact with victims in the case.
“We’re looking forward to our day in court, when we can actually go forward and present our defense,” Caldwell’s attorney Dan Cogdell said Thursday. “We believe in our hearts and in our souls that the jury is going to do the right thing at the end of this trail and acquit Pastor Caldwell of all charges.”
The next step in the case is expected June 27 when the judge and the attorneys involved will hold a status conference. The motion for deadlines in the case is July 6.
