WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - A Baptist minister in central Pennsylvania has been sentenced to one year in jail for stealing the identities of his church members.
Raymond Clayton Sr., 44, was also ordered to pay more than $28,000 in restitution at his sentencing Wednesday. Clayton is the former pastor of Grace Fellowship Church near Mount Carmel.
Federal prosecutors said Clayton used parishioners' personal information to obtain credit cards between November 2006 and April 2007. He pleaded guilty in March to access device fraud.
The church has since disbanded.
