MANTECA, Calif. -- A California pastor accused of selling his town's oldest church has pleaded guilty to embezzlement and agreed to 18 months in prison. Randall Radic had preached at First Congregational Church of Ripon for nearly a decade before he sold the church last October for $525,000, allegedly using the money to buy a BMW. Authorities said he also faked documents that gave him possession of his house, which was owned by the church, then used the property to take out loans. The sales were voided because of fraudulent paperwork. The 53-year-old ex-pastor remains jailed as he awaits a formal sentencing and restitution hearing on March 16.
