Former Word of Faith Fellowship church member Rick Cooper poses for a photo at his home in Charlotte, N.C., Monday, Sept. 18, 2017. He and 10 other members of the evangelical North Carolina-based church say their leader, Jane Whaley, coerced congregants into filing false unemployment claims after the faltering economy threatened weekly tithes from church-affiliated companies. “I was making about $700 a week, but I only collected $235 a week in unemployment,” Cooper said. “So I’m working the same hours _ many times, much longer hours _ for less. It was devastating for my family.” (AP Photo/Chuck Burton)
