Priest Sentenced For Embezzling From Churches

Coming from my hometown, our very own priest scandal. It is just me, or is this guy getting a total pass, just because he's a priest? I mean, he nets $60 grand and only gets probation? And maybe I'm not following enough sentencing hearings, but how often do you see the defense setting up a restitution account for anyone that wants to help pay the restitution?

Priest Sentenced For Embezzling From Churches "OMAHA, Neb. -- An Omaha priest who stole more than $83,000 from an Omaha parish has received probation.

Judge Russell Bowie sentenced Rodney Adams to three to five years of probation. Adams must also pay $23,000 in restitution over the next five years. The defense has established a restitution account at Wells Fargo bank for anyone who wants to help Adams pay back the church. He also must complete 500 hours of community service."
