On the surface, James Rupard seemed like a stand-up guy. He was a volunteer firefighter and a pastor at the community church of his small town. When he was arrested for stealing money from the same organizations he volunteered at, people were surprised. But that was nothing compared to the shock when they found out the dark secret from his past.
