Police say he embezzled more than $300,000.

SCOTTSVILLE, KY (WBKO) -- A former Allen County pastor is fined and sentenced to prison for embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Billy Owen Minix conducted services at the New Gospel Outreach Church for more than ten years, and in that time police say he embezzled more than $300,000. Detectives say Minix pocketed the money through fund raising projects he organized for the church.

Under a plea agreement with the commonwealth attorney, Minix will serve seven years in prison and pay a $1,000 fine. He was sentenced in Allen Circuit Court Monday.
