“Someone can control you when he puts fear in you, and that is what they do. So if they put that reasonable fear in you, then you fall to their tricks and do everything they tell you to do,” lawyer Ampaw said.

“If a pastor tells you, you are going to die, it is a threat of death and you can sue him for a maximum death sentence of 10 years and five years minimum,” he continued.
