New reports reveal, Oprah Winfrey’s longtime “spiritual healer” João Teixeira de Faria also known as “John of God,” has just received an additional sentence of 99 years in prison for hundreds of women and young girls.

João Teixeira de Faria who is now a convicted sex offender was formerly a Brazilian medium who gained worldwide attention after he was feathered on the Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, ABC News, and many more tv networks.

While he was on the set of the Oprah Winfrey Show, Oprah called João inspiring and even encouraged women to seek out his expertise.

In 2018, João was exposed after a total of over 600 women came out and accused him of sexual abusing them.

He was eventually convicted of raping 9 women and sentenced to 63 years in prison.

Now Conexao Politica has reported João will face additional 99 years in prison for being found guilty of raping more women.

Per The People’s Voice:

Oprah’s personal spiritual healer, João de Deus or “John of God,” has been sentenced to an additional 99 years in prison after being found guilty of raping hundreds of women and young girls.

For decades, from his small town in Center-west Brazilian state of Goiás, João Teixeira de Faria built a worldwide reputation as a medium and faith healer.

Oprah Winfrey endorsed João de Deus on her talk show in 2012 after traveling all the way to Brazil to interview him, calling him “inspiring” and encouraging women to seek his help.

Here’s a clip of Oprah interview with Joao:

The Daily Mail reported back in 2019, that Joao Teixeira de Faria was accused of trafficking babies too.

Per Daily Mail:

A celebrity faith healer who is accused of abusing over 600 women ran a baby trafficking operation where children were then sold to childless couples.

Joao Teixeira de Faria, 77, was arrested on December 17 on the outskirts of Abadiania, in rural Brazil on rape charges.

De Faria, who is also known as ‘John of God’, became a wanted man after a bombshell late night chat show on Brazil’s Globo TV network aired accusations from ten women of abuse at his Casa de Dom Inacio de Loyola in Abadiania.

Now the activist Sabrina Bittencourt – whose investigations lead to his arrest – claims the celebrity medium ran a baby trafficking operation where children were ‘farmed’ in Brazil before being sold to childless couples around the world.

She alleges that young girls were held captive in remote farms where they were forced to produce babies – before being murdered after ten years of giving birth.

Bittencourt told the Mirror that she spoke to women from at least three continents, including Europe, who claimed they bought Brazilian babies from John of God for as much as $50,000.

She said she spoke to former members of Teixeira’s gang, who described how the scheme worked, after they became ‘tired of being complicit’ in his crimes.
