Remembering Purported Messiah Sun Myung Moon, Convicted Felon and Federal Inmate 03835-054
Rev. Sun Myung Moon, who died in September at age 92, was best known for founding the Unification Church and marrying thousands at mass weddings.
But we’ll always remember the controversial religious leader as a convicted felon who spent 13 months in federal prison for conspiracy to evade taxes. Moon, inmate number 03835-054, was sentenced to 18 months in custody after a New York City jury convicted him in 1982.
