Pennsylvania Priest Given 3 To 6 Year Sentence In Landmark Abuse Case

Monsignor William Lynn of the Philadelphia Archdiocese was found guilty Tuesday of one count of child endangerment , receiving slightly less than the maximum sentence of three-and-a-half to seven years in prison for the third-degree felony.  The trial represented the first time that U.S. prosecutors charged leaders within the Catholic Church for failing to stop priests who allegedly committed the abuse.
