Nuns Accused Of Embezzling From Catholic School For Gambling
A shocking story about two Pennsylvania nuns is going viral. CBS Philadelphia reports that the ladies allegedly took $500,000 from St. James Catholic School to spend on trips and gambling at casinos while telling parents the school was operating on a shoestring budget, officials and parents said.
The nuns in question were Sister Mary Margaret Kreuper, and Sister Lana Chang, who both had retired earlier this year. CBS reports that they were investigated for being “involved in the personal use of a substantial amount of school funds.”
Sister Mary allegedly confessed to authorities immediately. Both ladies have since expressed remorse and the church is not pursuing criminal charges.
