Embezzling priest gets 27 months
from Detroit Free Press
The Rev. Edward Belczak was sentenced to 27 months in prison for stealing $573,000 from the St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Troy, Michigan, where he had served as pastor for almost 30 years. U.S. District Judge Arthur Tarnow said a prison sentence was necessary to act as a deterrent to others because the Catholic priest was a community leader who was "stealing from the church and people who trusted you most."
