Ordered to stand trial: Father James Dokos, accused of stealing from church in Wauwatosa
MILWAUKEE COUNTY (WITI) — A former Milwaukee-area priest accused of stealing from his church will stand trial.
Father James Dokos was in court on Wednesday morning, July 30th — facing charges of felony theft.
Prosecutors say he took more than $100,000 from Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Wauwatosa when he was a priest there.
If convicted, Dokos faces up to 10 years in prison.
He’ll be back in court in September — when he’s expected to enter a plea.
