The Rev. James Dokos priest pleaded not guilty to a felony theft charge on August 26 during his arraignment in a Milwaukee County courtroom.

Dokos, 62 is charged with improperly spending more than $100,000 from a trust fund intended to benefit Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Milwaukee where he served as pastor for xxx

He was transferred to Sts. Peter and Paul in 2012 and has been placed on leave from Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Glenview pending the outcome of the case.

Authorities launched an investigation last year into how the trust fund money was spent.

“The fund was established by a longtime Annunciation parishioner and his wife, and while the church received $1.1 million from the fund, Annunciation members alerted authorities after finding possible discrepancies in how the rest of the money was allotted,” according to the Chicago Tribune.

Dokos’ have said members of the Annunciation made the accusations to cover up their own mismanagement of the fund.
