ALBION, N.Y. (AP) — A Roman Catholic nun has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for stealing nearly $130,000 from two western New York parishes to support a gambling addiction.
Sister Mary Anne Rapp also was ordered at Monday’s sentencing to perform 100 hours of community service and repay $128,000.
Rapp pleaded guilty to grand larceny in Orleans County Court in April. The 68-year-old admitted stealing from St. Mary’s Church in Holley and St. Mark’s Church in Kendall from 2006 to 2011. The thefts were discovered during an audit.
