NY Nun Gets Jail for Stealing $128,000 to Feed Gambling Addiction

A Roman Catholic nun is going to jail for stealing almost $130,000 from a pair of New York parishes in order to feed her gambling habit.

From 2006 to 2011, Sister Mary Anne Rapp took a total of $128,000 from St. Mary's Church in Holley and St. Mark's Church in Kendall. The 68-year-old then gambled away all that pilfered money at a bunch of grubby casinos in Western New York.

Rapp pleaded guilty to grand larceny in April. Besides 90 days in jail, her sentence includes 100 hours community service and an order to pay back the money she took. Plus a lot of Hail Marys and Our Fathers, probably.
