William Neil Gallagher Wiki – William Neil Gallagher Biography

William Neil Gallagher, A Texas radio host, was sentenced to three life prison sentences Monday for a Ponzi scheme in which he bilked elderly listeners out of millions of dollars.

Gallagher also got a 30-year prison sentence from state District Judge Elizabeth Beach for his August guilty pleas. The sentences are to be served concurrently.

Age

He is 80 years old.

Crime

Gallagher is one of the worst offenders I have seen,” said Lori Varnell, chief of the Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Elder Financial Fraud team. “He ruthlessly stole from his clients who trusted him for almost a
decade. “He amassed $32 million in loss to all of his clients and exploited many elder individuals. He worked his way around churches preying on people who believed he was a Christian.”

Gallagher, 80, ran the Gallagher Financial Group that advertised on Christian radio with the tagline “See you in church on Sunday.”

In 2020, he pleaded guilty to similar charges in Dallas County and was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Gallagher promoted his investment business in books, such as “Jesus Christ, Money Master,” and Christian radio broadcasts. He was indicted in Tarrant County on these charges in August 2019.

More than a dozen senior victims testified Monday during a three-hour court hearing about losing anywhere from $50,000 to $600,000 that they invested in the Gallagher Financial Group.

Some have had to sell their homes, borrow money from their children or take part-time jobs to supplement their social security payments. They spoke of losing trust in people and of the depression many now suffer because of
losing their money through Gallagher’s company.

Sentenced

Judge Elizabeth Beach sentenced Gallagher to life terms on three charges — securing the execution of a document by deception for an amount greater than $200,000, theft of property more than $300,000, and misapplication of fiduciary property or property of a financial institution of more than $300,000.

He was sentenced to another ten years each on three charges: One charge of forgery against the elderly and two charges of exploitation of the elderly.
