Gambling priest gets probation
January 13, 2010
A New York priest has been sentenced to 5 years of probation after pleading guilty to larceny. Father Patrick Dunne admitted having used $432,000 in parish funds for gambling. After he acknowledged a “serious gambling problem” and said that he had hoped to “hit it big” for his parish, a New York judge decided not to require a prison sentence. The larceny conviction might have brought a sentence of up to 15 years in jail.
