A pastor's wife has been arrested after allegedly stealing money from a medical clinic in Jackson County.
On Tuesday, a grand jury indicted Susan Combs Pratt after officials from Mercy Clinic said she stole $1.4 million from the practice. Pratt, who worked at the clinic for 12 years as a registered nurse and office manager, is charged with theft by failure to make required disposition of property, according to media reports.
Commonwealth Attorney Darrell Herald says the charge is based on Pratt “coming into possession of money and not disposing of it as she should have.” She allegedly committed the theft over a period of four years.
Pratt is married to senior pastor Preston Pratt of Living Waters Full Gospel Church, in Hazard.
She was lodged in Three Forks Regional Jail in Beattyville, but bonded out of custody
