BALLLSTON SPA -- A Kingsbury church pastor who was arrested in January for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Corinth credit union where he worked pleaded guilty to a felony charge Monday.

Jason LaPierre, 35, of Green Barn Road pleaded guilty to second-degree grand larceny for stealing more than $400,000 from Hudson River Community Credit Union over the past four years.

“A felony conviction, combined with full restitution of $400,000 dollars, in a lump sum, as well as the proposed prison sentence is a deterrent and serves justice," Saratoga County District Attorney James Murphy said in a press release.

The credit union was insured and was to be reimbursed any money that is not recovered, Murphy said.

He was the organizations marketing director and also was a minister at River Church in Kingsbury.

LaPierre agreed to serve a 3- to 9-year prison term. He is to be sentenced July 11.

Court records show that he deposited and cashed numerous fake and forged checks to withdraw money from the bank.
