Guilty plea in $1 million embezzlement from New York archdiocese

A former finance officer for the New York archdiocese has pleaded guilty to embezzlement charges and faces at least a 4-year prison term.

Anita Collins admitted that she took more than $1 million from the archdiocese over a period of years. She is unable to repay the money, but the archdiocese will profit from the sale of an expensive doll collection that Collins amassed with the stolen funds.
