Plastic Surgery Lands Pastor Five Years’ Probation

Plastic Surgery Lands Pastor Five Years’ Probation

Plastic surgery seems an unusual luxury for a pastor — and it’s one that a Staten Island clergyman could only afford after embezzling nearly $85,000 from church funds.

Rev William BlasingameAn Episcopalian pastor has given himself something to pray about after landing five years probation and a hefty fine. What did he do? He pled guilty to felony grand larceny – having stolen nearly $85,000 from church funds to pay for plastic surgery.

Prosecutors said the Rev. William Blasingame of St. Paul’s Memorial Episcopal Church in Staten Island, New York, stole money meant for charity and church upkeep. He used tens of thousands of dollars on plastic surgery and Botox injections.

Blasingame will reportedly sell land he owns in Georgia to cover the missing amount. And having pled guilty, he’s on probation for five years, as part of a plea bargain. But, had he been convicted, Blasingame could have faced up to 15 years in prison.
