Former Church Pastor In Connecticut Accused Of Embezzling Nearly $200K From Parishoner

From WFSB TV3 on 3/3/2015:

A former pastor is waiting to stand trial for accusations that he stole more than $100,000 from an elderly parishioner.
Now, he is in trouble with the law again.

Trumbull police arrested Robert Genevicz for larceny.

He once served as pastor of Stratford's First Baptist Church.

Detectives said in 2010 Genevicz was acting as a power of attorney and embezzled close to $200,000 from an elderly man who has since passed away.

Police said his accomplice was identified as Doraine Reed, who is being held on a $100,000 bond.

Authorities said Genevicz and an accomplice bought a Mercedes and a hummer, taking out a loan, registering it and insuring it in the victim's name.

Genevicz is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
