For immediate release
For now, the historic trial involving allegations of rape and other sex acts perpetrated by pedophile priests, and allegations that the priest in charge of investigating allegations of priest sex abuse reassigned the abusers to unsuspecting parishes is now over.
Just a few hours ago, Monsignor Lynn was found guilty of one count of child endangerment. He was acquitted on another charge of child endangerment and the other charge of conspiracy.
His co-defendant, Brennan, could be retried, as the jurors hung on both counts.
