A former administrative assistant at the Christ the King Episcopal Church in Sturgeon Bay has been charged with 16 felony counts of forgery and theft.  According to the criminal complaint, Crystal J. Miller, 29, of Sturgeon Bay forged 15 checks totaling over $9,800 and stole over $1,000 in cash from the church.  Sturgeon Bay police officers responded to a fraud complaint on November 16 by church officials.  After meeting with the police, Miller confessed to forging the checks and stealing money in the last year to pay bills and debts.   If convicted, Miller faces up to six years of imprisonment and $10,000 in fines for each forgery charge and up to 10 years and $25,000 fine for theft.
