Rev. Markel Hutchins Speaks Out On Powertalk

On today’s Powertalk w/ Lorraine Jacques White, Rev. Markel Hutchins called in to state his position and purpose in suing the Johnston family. For those who don’t know, Kathryn Johnston was the 92 year old woman who was killed in her home by Atlanta police officers. Rev. Markell Hutchins took on their case as a family spokesperson, but now that monies have been paid… all hell has broken loose!

“I had an expressed agreement. I could not in good conscious put a contract in their face,” stated Hutchins, “But when you go to work for someone, and you perform a task, and you do it in excellence, you are obligated to pay them!”

Hutchins also claims that the agreement assured him a 10% “tithe” payout when the recovery was secured. He has not talked to the Johnston family or the Cochran firm since.

Listen to the conversation below and see if you agree with his pursuit:
