A former minister at First Baptist Church in Houston is headed to prison for embezzlement. Jerrell Altic received the ten year sentence today after he admitted to taking over 800-thousand-dollars from the church. Harris County prosecutors say Altic used the cash to go on a vacation, buy personal items, and pay for a doctorate. It is believed the theft happened between 2011 and 2017.
