WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Three people including a Winston-Salem pastor have been indicted for embezzling money from a church in Madison.
John Albert Jackson Sr., 63, of Winston-Salem, John Albert Jackson Jr., 38, of Kernersville, and Treva Toshanda Tatum Moore, of Madison, were all charged.
The charges come after Goodwill Baptist Church reported a loss of $66,567 during Jackson Sr.’s 19 year tenure there. Jackson Sr. is the church’s former pastor. He currently serves as the pastor of Grace Fellowship Church in Winston-Salem.
Deputies said Jackson Jr. and Moore also attended Goodwill Baptist Church until Jackson Sr. resigned in 2011 after being confronted by church members about the missing funds.
Authorities said Jackson Sr. and Jackson Jr. turned themselves into High Point officials where they were served with the indictments. Jackson Sr. received a $10,000 secured bond and Jackson Jr. a $7,500 secured bond.
Deputies said Moore turned herself into the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office and received a $40,000 secured bond. All three have court planned for Sept. 16.
The suspects face various charges including felonious embezzlement of funds malfeasance of corporation officers and obtaining property by false pretense.
