Former Church Employee Ordered to Pay Back $35,000

| September 16, 2011

St. Isidore Catholic Church's former facilities manager, Virgilio Lukban, will spend the next three years paying back $35,000 of $68,802 he is charged with stealing from the Danville church.

The 47-year-old Danville resident pleaded no contest Thursday to grand theft charges and was sentenced to three years probation and 65 days in jail but received credit for time he served after his arrest in May.

Lukban's attorney, Bill Gagen, said Lukban, who began working at the church in 2003, believed many of the purchases he made using church money were approved by St. Isidore's former bookkeeper, Kathleen Dake.

Dake, of Blackhawk, was sentenced last month to 300 days in jail and three years probation, for stealing more than $400,000 from the church to pay for plastic surgery, shopping trips, services on her Porsche and other personal expenses.
