Former Priest Charged With Stealing From Church

Courtroom
Moodboard

A former Havre priest has denied federal charges that allege he took nearly $65,000 from St. Jude Thaddeus Church.

Dale Yurkovic pleaded not guilty to wire fraud and money laundering during an April 8 hearing before U.S. Magistrate Keith Strong in Great Falls. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Yurkovic’s trial is set for June 18.

The Havre Daily News reports Yurkovic served as pastor at the Havre parish from July 2009 to late 2011 and lives in Las Vegas.

The indictment alleges that in December 2009, Yurkovic deposited a $50,000 donation to the church into a credit union account he opened without the church’s knowledge, then transferred the money to his personal account. Prosecutors allege he also transferred just over $14,500 from a church account to his account in February 2010.
