DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — A jury will continue deliberating the case of an accused cult leader on Friday morning.

They began deliberating Eligio Bishop’s case Thursday evening after attorneys presented closing arguments.

Bishop is known as Nature Boy online.

Investigators have accused him of leading a cult known as CarbonNation, raping a member when she tried to leave in 2022, and posting revenge porn online after she left.

Thursday morning, the trial was delayed because Bishop said he was concerned Judge Stacey Hydrick was spreading COVID.

“He wants to be present for his own trial, but he doesn’t want his own health at issue,” said Defense Attorney Rob Booker.

Hydrick said she tested positive earlier this week. She canceled court Tuesday afternoon and all of Wednesday, but she returned Thursday. She offered masks and face shields.
