HUDSON, Wis. (AP) – A Hudson priest has been sentenced to two years of probation for stealing more than $10,000 from a church charity account.

The Rev. Daniel Dahlberg pleaded no contest to misdemeanor theft during an appearance in St. Croix County Circuit Court Thursday. District Attorney says Dahlberg paid $13,000 in restitution to St. Patrick Church. The priest was accused of stealing from a parish account used to help needy families to support his gambling habit. Defense attorney James Remington says Dahlberg has completed a treatment program.

The priest left St. Patrick shortly before he was charged on April 4. Judgment on a no contest plea to a felony theft charge was deferred for two years.

The Superior Telegram says Dahlberg was also ordered to do 100 hours of community service.
