Fmr. Pa. priest gets prison for $425K church theft
READING, Pa. (AP) - September 29, 2012 (WPVI) -- A former Roman Catholic priest has been sentenced for two to seven years in state prison for stealing $425,000 from an eastern Pennsylvania parish.
Sixty-six-year-old Richard Nachajski of York pleaded guilty in August to theft.
Authorities said the money he stole from St. Anthony's of Padua in Millmont from 1998 to 2009 went to pay for lavish trips, a vehicle and a timeshare in Mexico.
The Reading Eagle says Berks County Judge Scott Keller imposed a harsher sentence Friday than what prosecutors had requested.
Nachajski asked for community service instead of prison. But the judge said he did not see any genuine remorse.
