New York priest faces larceny charge for theft from parish

July 21, 2011

A suspended priest of the Diocese of Rochester, New York, has been charged with stealing $10,000 in parish funds.

Father Vincent Panepinto, who was placed on leave from his parish assignment earlier this year because of a sex-abuse charge, now also faces a charge of grand larceny. He reportedly said that he needed money because he was being blackmailed.
