Facilities manager sentenced in St. Isidore embezzlement case

| September 20, 2011

A Danville resident and former employee of St. Isidore's Church is may have a difficult time paying the bills. Virgilo Lukban, 47, pleaded no contest to one count of petty theft and now must repay part of the $68,0000 he stole from the church.

The former facilities manager was charged with five felony counts of embezzlement after stealing $68,802 from the church on La Gonda Way. In exchange for the no contest plea, the felony charges were dropped to a misdemeanor and Lukban will only be responsible for $35,000 in restitution.

"He will be on probation for three years and he will be working as will his family to raise money for restitution," said Lukban's lawyer, Bill Gagen. "He had already paid $15,000 into our trust account and that would be turned over to Diocese."

Although Gagen did not specify how the Lukbans will raise money for restitution, he said it would be a difficult task.
