NAPERVILLE – A Naperville man pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing more than $1.6 million worth of donations and investments intended for his church expansion, according to DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin.
Howard Richmond, 52, of 2939 Brossman Ave., entered his plea in front of Judge Blanche Hill Fawell.
Richmond was the pastor of Life Reach Ministries, a storefront church in an Aurora strip mall. Richmond portrayed himself as a successful pastor who showed members of his congregation and other supporters bank documents stating that he had millions of dollars in the bank, according to Berlin's office.
