A Detroit pastor who doubled as a city building official is due in federal court Dec. 11 for sentencing in a scheme to have taxpayers pay for kitchen equipment at his church.
The sentencing for Charlie Golden was to have been Tuesday but was reset shortly beforehand.
Golden faces 10 to 16 months in prison. The government says he told a city contractor to get someone to install an expensive exhaust and hood over a deep fryer at Perfecting Freedom Church.
The FBI says Golden signed phony city invoices to ensure that the contractor would be paid by Detroit. Golden was the city's assistant buildings superintendent.
