SANDY HOOK, Ky. (AP) — An Elliott County man whose unusual theft sentence sent him to church has again been charged with stealing.

After James Nickell told a judge he stole from First Baptist Church in Sandy Hook, the judge let him choose his sentence. The choices were a year in jail or to attend worship services at the church for six weeks and walk in front of the church building wearing a sign that read "I stole from this church." The church is across the street from Nickell's home.

WKYT-TV (http://bit.ly/YJ5BIZ ) in Lexington reported Nickell chose attending church, but authorities have now arrested him on another theft charge. He's charged with theft by unlawful taking under $500.
