For Armstrong, crime does pay

Former priest, Donald Armstrong, who defrauded his Colorado parish of more than two-hundred-thousand dollars and led the same parish out of The Episcopal Church has been sentenced in the case. For Armstrong, crime paid to the une of a little over $300,000.

Armstrong has been ordered to repay $99,000 of the $$392000+ and placed on four year's probation. Armstrong has, as of yet, not acknowledged any misconduct in the matter.

As readers will recall, Armstrong used church funds to pay for the education of his children and other personal expenses. Trust funds were raided for his personal profit.
