GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) - A 72-year-old from who stole money from Grand Haven church offerings has entered into a plea deal.
Joseph Finnigan has pleaded guilty to two charges of larceny of $20,000 or more.
As part of a deal with prosecutors, one count of embezzlement of between $20,000 and $50,000 will be dropped. That is a 10-year-felony.
Finnigan will be required to pay $120,000 in restitution before his April 22 sentencing date.
