Former Priest who Stole from Louisa Parishes Dies in Jail

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, Va (WVIR) -

A former Roman Catholic priest convicted of stealing thousands from two Louisa County parishes has died.

Chiles Funeral Home in Richmond says Rodney Rodis, 58, passed away August 5 in prison. The cause of death is not being released.

Rodis was found guilty in January 2009 of taking more than $400,000 from the parishes while living a double life as a married man.

In court, Rodis said he stole the money to help his family and others in his native Philippines.
