N.Y. nun stole from parishes to support gambling habit, officials say

BUFFALO — A nun with a gambling addiction was accused of stealing $128,000 from two rural parishes where she worked.

Sister Mary Anne Rapp was treated for a gambling addiction and is in recovery, her order said Monday, but she still faces a criminal charge of grand larceny after the thefts from the St. Mary and St. Mark congregations. She was expected to plead not guilty in Kendall Town Court.
