ABC7 (Chicago)’s Kevin Ray reports the Rev. Derrick Mosley has been found guilty of trying to extort $20K from Gary Sheffield in exchange for supressing a videotape of the Yankee outfielder’s wife doing the nasty with R. Kelly.

“He was Cinderella for a day,” said Mike Petro, defense attorney. “The thing that Derrick Mosley Didn’t know was that when the clock struck 12, he was going to go back to being Derrick Mosley, no more East Bank Club.”

Reached by phone Monday, Rufus Williams told ABC7 that Gary Sheffield and his wife are relieved it’s over.

“It is my true hope that this verdict will discourage anyone else from seeking to take advantage of celebrities or professional athletes,” Williams said.
