In a time when the Church is being vilified with accusations of Stealing Money, Pastor’s sleeping with Members of the Church, and all types of non-religious activity; a Pastor of a Church in Connecticut has been charged with stealing – not money, but electricity.

Bishop William Marshall who is the Pastor of City of Life Worship and Deliverance Center in Bridgeport, was charged with third-degree larceny.


Police say investigators for United Illuminating Co. had checked a meter at a building where Marshall was operating a barbershop in October.   They then say even though power to the barbershop had been disconnected in 2013 for failure to pay a $4,000 bill, it appeared that electricity was still being delivered.
 Investigators say the meter had been illegally reconnected, powering the barbershop but not registering the service on the meter.
So Bishop William Marshall is charged with third-degree larceny with an $8,000 electricity bill.
