      Former Temperance pastor accused of theft

      A former Temperance pastor is accused of stealing more than a million dollars from church and family members.

      The Monroe County Prosecutor has filed a six count warrant against Stephen Sparks, 59. Sparks was the former pastor of Bridge Point Church on Lewis Avenue, just north of Erie Road.

      Prosecutors say the scheme involved a fake company that promised potential investors high returns in electronic sales.

      Sparks' brother and son are also facing charges. All deny they purposedly stole from people.
