Ordered to stand trial: Father James Dokos, accused of stealing from church in Wauwatosa

MILWAUKEE COUNTY (WITI) -- A former Milwaukee-area priest accused of stealing from his church will stand trial.

Father James Dokos was in court on Wednesday morning, July 30th -- facing charges of felony theft.

Prosecutors say he took more than $100,000 from Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Wauwatosa when he was a priest there.

If convicted, Dokos faces up to 10 years in prison.

He'll be back in court in September -- when he's expected to enter a plea.
