Televangelist Jimmy Swaggart is defrocked by the Assemblies of God after it is revealed that he was involved with a prostitute. Swaggart had been ordered to stay off TV for a year, but returned anyway after just three months.

At first Swaggart had denied all the allegations against him, but as media investigation continued he was not able to continue stonewalling and finally had to confess on live television to some of the charges. This was his infamous, tearful "I have sinned" speech.
