Local nun joins in appeal to discipline Bishop Finn

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - In a rare move, a local nun is joining the appeal to the Pope to discipline their bishop.

Holding a sidewalk news conference outside the Kansas City Catholic Diocesan headquarters downtown, they said Bishop Robert Finn needs to be punished.

They say he mishandled complaints against a priest who admitted to taking pornographic photos of young parishioners.

Sister Jeanne Christensen was once a church insider helping victims, but now she's revealing continuing failures by Finn.

Finn has already punished by the law when he pleaded guilty in 2012 to a misdemeanor count of failing to report suspected child abuse and got probation. The group said he should have lost his position in the church.
