The fact that Garland Egerton was in a position of extreme trust, and the fact that he called himself a “man of God”, should have meted him the MAXIMUM sentence under the law.

Society places “Gospel Ministers” in a place of of supreme trust, and bookkeepers of a church are in no less of a position of trust…perhaps more! The fact that he got off with a much lesser sentence is absolutely horrific, and an extreme travesty of justice.

“Men of God” should be held to a much higher standard…and this includes punishment when they abuse the public trust…ESPECIALLY WHEN THE FUNDS INVOLVED ARE TAX FREE (EXEMPT) MONEY GIVEN BY FOLKS WHO THINK THEY ARE DOING “GOD’S WORK”.

SHAME ON THIS WOLF IN SHEEPS CLOTHING, Garland Egerton, AND DOUBLE SHAME ON THOSE WHO MADE THE DECISION TO LET THIS CHARLATAN OFF, NAMELY DISTRICT ATTORNEY BENNETT.

One last question I have that I believe any reasonable person would like answered:

Does DA Bennett have any ties to the “Unity of Wichita Church”? Does he, or his family, either attend that church, or, have ANY ties, whatsoever, to the church or anyone associated with it?

These answers MUST be fully and completely addressed, and, fully and completely answered, publicly, immediately and without delay.

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) –The former executive director of Inter-Faith Ministries in Wichita has been sentenced to probation for embezzling more than $100,000 from the church.

Sixty-six-year-old Garland Egerton, of Wichita, was sentenced Tuesday to five years of probation, with an underlying prison sentence of 32 months.

Egerton pleaded guilty in February to one count of theft.

District Attorney March Bennett said in a news release that Egerton’s lack of criminal history and a request from the church were factors in granting him probation.

Egerton also was ordered to pay $129,556 in restitution, to have no contact with the Unity of Wichita Church and to attend a theft offender class.

An audit found that $120,000 went missing from the church between 2013 and 2018. Egerton was the church’s bookkeeper at the time.
