Ex-Church Official Allegedly Used Stolen Funds for Vasectomy

An Indiana prosecutor says a former church official is charged with stealing more than $276,000 from church accounts and using some of the money to pay for a vasectomy.

Grant County Prosecutor Jim Luttrull says William Jeremiah Six faces eight counts of theft and one count of fraud.

Six was director of finances for Lakeview Wesleyan Church and Lakeview Christian School from June 2004 to July 2008.

Court documents say Six is accused of using electronic transfers from church and school accounts to pay his credit cards and medical bills and to buy cars and motorcycles. Prosecutors say the medical bills included $736 for a vasectomy.

Court records say the 28-year-old man has repaid the church $25,000.

No court date had been set.
