The jury is back in the should-have-been-a-RICO trial in Philadelphia. At least one person can no longer hide behind his cassock.
Msgr. William J. Lynn, found guilty on one count of child endangerment, is the first church official nationwide to be convicted for enabling or covering up clergy-sex abuse. He faces up to seven years in prison.
He was found not guilty on two other counts and the jury deadlocked on his co-defendant.
