Pastor sentenced to 2 years
The pastor of a Waldorf-based church that claims to minister to people with drug and alcohol addictions was sentenced to more than two years in prison in a scheme to obstruct bankruptcy proceedings.
A federal judge also ordered Robert J. Freeman, 56, to pay $630,000 in restitution.
Freeman, who calls himself Dr. Shine and claims to treat addicts through the rites of exorcism, served as pastor and leader of Save the Seed Ministry.
Freeman used money from church members to accumulate substantial assets, including 11 luxury cars valued at more than $1 million and a $1.75 million residence, which he concealed from the bankruptcy court in 2005.
