Texas pastor gets probation for stealing from home

DALLAS, TX

Sandy McGriff, cofounder of the Church of the Living God in Dallas, was sentenced to five years of probation for taking fur coats, designer purses and electronics from the home of Serita Agnew on Christmas Eve.

The Dallas Morning News reports state District Judge Andy Chatham told McGriff before sentencing her Thursday her actions were "no way to lead your life or to teach others."

McGriff apologized to Agnew, who was in the courtroom.

The pastor had claimed she was only protecting the valuables after she found a broken window at Agnew's home.
