A restitution amount is being discussed by the prosecution and defense attorneys in a criminal embezzlement case in which the minister is charged with embezzling from Journey Church in Sallisaw.
Jeffrey Scott Allred, 42, is charged with embezzling less than $10,000 from the church. He was charged on Nov. 13 in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw. But a civil case, filed by the church in the same court on Sept. 28, asks for no less than $50,000.
However, the civil case was dismissed Monday and listed as “settled.” Allred’s attorney, Craig Cook of Fort Smith, was unavailable for comment on Tuesday afternoon.
Associate District Judge Kyle Waters is to hear what both parties decide at a disposition docket in district court on Wednesday, and then decide what will occur next in the criminal case.
