Howells Sentenced

A couple accused of deceiving a Bowling Green Bank out of $20,000, is sentenced in Warren Circuit Court.

Judge Steve Wilson sentenced Gregg Howell to five years in prison and his wife Diane, to five years probation. The couple had earlier pleaded guilty to withdrawing $20,000 from American Bank and Trust that had been unlawfully wired to their account. The Howell’s have since paid restitution.

Members of a church in Texas say Howell owes them more than $160,000 from an unfinished contracting job on their church.

No word on if or when Howell will face charges connected to that alleged deception.
