Kentucky man sentenced to attend church

ELLIOTT COUNTY, Ky . (WKYT) - Go to jail or go to church. That was the choice for a Kentucky man arrested in a theft case.

As part of his plea deal, a judge sentenced 23-year-old James Talbot Nickell to attend Sunday services for six weeks at the First Baptist Church in Sandy Hook.

He was also ordered to march before and after the services with a sign that says "I stole from this church".

The sheriff says Nickell pleaded guilty after deputies found guitars in his home, stolen during a break-in at the church in December.
