Memphis man sentenced for defrauding churches


The Commercial Appeal newspaper in Memphis, Tenn., reports:

A Memphis man has been sentenced to 171/2 years in federal prison after his conviction earlier this year of running a bogus debt-reduction company that defrauded regional churches of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Charles A. McKuhn Jr. traveled to several states in 2009 and met with pastors and church officials, falsely represented himself as a banker and persuaded them to pay him large sums of money for debt reduction and lines of credit for building funds, court documents show.

Among the victims: The Ensley Church of Christ in Birmingham, Ala., which paid McKuhn’s company $106,540.
