It's the second day of former Lubbock Pastor James Clark's federal fraud trial.
The government alleges Clark used his church to apply for a federal food program used to feed needy kids. Church members and administrators who testified say they were unaware Clark was using the church as a sponsor; and receiving money from the government.
Clark is accused of taking about $586,000 from the federal program from 2003-2005. Although Clark did feed some kids, witnesses involved in the project say they never fed nearly as many kids as Clark reported. In addition, a food vendor says they only did about $1,900 worth of business with Clark; yet records indicated Clark claims spending $119,000 with the company.
The government alleges Clark used the extra money to buy a house, remodel, buy a car, and take trips to Africa.
Clark was found guilty of importing a Kenyan woman for prostitution back in December.
Meanwhile, the defense says Clark was a part-time pastor and could have independent ministries. They also indicated inconsistencies in Clark's paperwork didn't necessarily mean guilt. They say he turned in documents himself so he wasn't hiding anything.
The trial continues Thursday.
