Nuns who took vow of poverty caught embezzling $500,000
In a real life Sister Act in reverse, two Californian nuns, who have taken a vow of poverty, have been caught embezzling Catholic Church funds.
Sister Mary Kreuper and Sister Lana Chang took the funds from St James’ Catholic School in Torrance, Los Angeles, during a number of years. Kreuper was the school’s principal, AP reported.
It is claimed they were able to disguise their actions by depositing numerous checks made out to the school into another bank account.
Their order, the Sisters of St Joseph of Carondelet, said: “The Sisters have confirmed the misappropriation of funds and have cooperated in the investigation.”
They are alleged to have embezzled half a million dollars over the years, taking trips to Las Vegas, where they allegedly gambled the money away.
At first the school said it did not wish to pursue criminal proceedings, but now the schools says that they are considering pursuing a criminal case.
The nuns have conveyed the “deep remorse” they feel for their actions. The nuns are said to be cooperating with the school and authorities and intend to pay the money back in full.
