— A local minister was sentenced Monday to 70 months in federal prison for filing false tax claims.

Ivan Greene was the senior pastor at Freedom and Deliverance Outreach Incorporated in Clinton.

He filed claims for 11 tax refunds totaling nearly $700,000 in 1999.

Greene will not have to pay a fine or restitution because the court found he had no money to do so.
