Kansas City Catholic Perspective: Bishop Finn Colleague Gets Conviction Reversed
Check this rare victory for American Catholics that has a connection to Kansas City . . .
"A Roman Catholic church official who has been jailed for more than a year for his handling of priest sex-abuse complaints had his conviction reversed and was ordered released Thursday."
Check the Kansas City Alt. Catholic take:
"Until KC Bishop Robert Finn was convicted of hiding child porn evidence from police, only one other Catholic official in the US had ever been found guilty of "enabling" child sex crimes. Now, that official will soon walk out of prison, because a court overturned his conviction."
And so . . .
This might be a sign of hope for Cowtown Catholics in the year to come given that the legacy of Kansas City Child Sex Abuse Scandal continued to impact this town throughout the year in terms of ongoing big settlements, a continued downturn in donations and overall lower church attendance.
