Ky. man sentenced to go to church, arrested again, report says
(CBS/AP) ELLIOT COUNTY, Ky. - James Nickell, an eastern Kentucky man whose unusual sentence for theft included attending church, has again been charged with stealing.
After Nickell told a judge he stole from the First Baptist Church in Sandy Hook, Ky., the judge let him choose his sentence. The choices were a year in jail, or attending worship services at the church for six weeks and walking outside wearing a sign that read, "I stole from this church."
The church is across the street from Nickell's home.
CBS affiliate WKYT-TV reported Nickell chose attending church, but authorities have now arrested him on another theft charge - unlawful taking under $500.
