(ABC13) — A former minister who admitted to stealing more than $800,000 from Houston’s First Baptist Church is headed to prison for a decade.

Prosecutors say Jerrell G. Altic, 40, embezzled the money over a six-year period that ended in November 2017. Altic’s attorney says Altic has admitted to stealing the money.

On Monday, Altic was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
