Delaware Priest Indicted for Theft of Parish Funds; Priest Wrote Checks to Himself for Over $358,000

The Catholic Culture website reports today (February 5, 2011) that a Catholic pastor in Delaware has been indicted on charges of theft and falsifying records with prosecutors charging that he made personal use of parish funds.

Fr. Cornelius Breslin wrote checks to himself amounting to more than $358,000 from the accounts of two parishes in Wilmington, prosecutors say.

The attorney general of Delaware began an investigation of the parish finances, after receiving a report from the Wilmington diocese indicating that something was amiss.
