Pa. Catholic official convicted of endangerment

• AP
A Roman Catholic church official was convicted Friday of child endangerment but acquitted of conspiracy in a groundbreaking clergy-abuse trial, becoming the first U.S. church official convicted of a crime for mishandling abuse claims.

Monsignor William Lynn helped the archdiocese keep predators in ministry, and the public in the dark, by telling parishes their priests were being removed for health reasons and then sending the men to unsuspecting churches, prosecutors said.

Now let there be found out that these priests that were moved harmed other young men in those places they were sent to and this will be a huge house of cards that will come down with a loud crash.
