(Newser) – A New York nun is facing a grand larceny charge today after allegedly stealing more than $100,000 from two churches where she worked … and using the money to reportedly fuel her gambling habit. Sister Mary Anne Rapp is accused of stealing donations from parishioners, and sources tell the Buffalo News she has been treated for a casino gambling addiction. A priest and several other church employees in the area have been charged with stealing church money in recent years, but the county district attorney notes, "I don't remember ever prosecuting a nun for anything."
