Orleans County: Nun admits stealing $128,000; faces jail time

| April 22, 2013

ALBION — A Catholic nun faces up to six months in jail after she admitted in Orleans County Court Monday to stealing $128,000 from two churches where she served.

Sister Mary Anne Rapp, 68, first waived her right to a grand jury proceeding before accepting the plea deal offered to her by District Attorney Joseph Cardone.

Rapp pleaded guilty to fourth-degree grand larceny and quietly admitted that she stole about $128,000 from St. Mary’s Church in Holley and St. Mark’s Church in Kendall.

Rapp stole the money from March 2006 to April 2011.

She told Judge James Punch that she was not sure of the exact amount.

Rapp was offered a deal that would see her receive no more than six months in jail and that would require her to pay “reasonable restitution,” which would be worked out at a later date.
