Andrew Sloane was vicar of St. Pauls, Knightbridge in London (and former Rector of St Paul’s, K Street in Washington, DC) when he managed to convince several parishioners to “loan” him thousands of pounds, and then stole another four thousand pounds from collection money. He then used the money to pay for male prostitutes.
