Convicted con man Barry Minkow has agreed to pay about $3.4 million in restitution to victims from whom he stolen money, while associated with a local church, his attorney told NBC 7.

Minkow’s attorney, Mark Adams said about $2.8 million of that amount will go directly to the church.

Adams said there was no hearing Monday on the restitution issue because the prosecution and defense had reached an agreement on the amount and terms of the restitution and filed it with the court.

Minkow opened unauthorized accounts, forged signatures on checks and misused member donations while working with the San Diego Community Bible Church.
