Ex-Round Rock pastor admits stealing from church


GEORGETOWN — A former pastor in Round Rock faces prison for stealing several hundred thousand dollars from his church.

Donald Roger Clyde pleaded guilty Thursday in Georgetown to two counts of felony theft as part of a plea agreement.

The 49-year-old resigned last year as senior pastor of the Fellowship at Forest Creek Church during the investigation of missing funds.

Prosecutors say Clyde used the money to buy property, boats and go on vacations.

Clyde is free on $400,000 bond, pending sentencing Oct. 2.

Williamson County District Attorney John Bradley says his office is recommending Clyde serve five years in prison, to be followed by 10 years probation.

Bradley told The Associated Press that Clyde has paid restitution of about $350,000 and would face about $450,000 more in restitution.
