Nun accused of $300K+ of sinning

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Sister Barbara Markey, a nun who co-wrote a popular marriage-preparation program was arrested on charges of improperly spending more than $300,000 on casinos, gifts and air travel.
Defense attorney John Stevens Berry Sr. said the case stems from a disagreement about ownership and funding priorities related to the FOCCUS marriage preparation program, which Markey, 71, helped develop. The program is widely used in the Roman Catholic Church.
