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.

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.
