Priest sentenced for Atlantic City church theft
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - February 8, 2013 (WPVI) -- An Episcopal priest in Ocean County has been sentenced for stealing thousands of dollars from an Atlantic City church.
57-year-old Timothy S. Holder was arrested in January 2012 for stealing from the Church of the Ascension on Kentucky Avenue.
Holder worked as the church's rector between 2007 and 2009.
An investigation revealed that during that period, Holder cashed over $35,000 worth of checks on the church's bank account.
Holder pleaded guilty in December and was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to pay $24,500 in restitution back to the church.
