LA Nun Pleads Guilty to $835,000 School Theft; Retired School Principal Used Money to Gamble

 A Los Angeles nun, who took a vow of poverty, agreed to plead guilty yesterday to federal charges for stealing more than $800,000 to pay for a gambling habit, the LA Times website reports today (June 9, 2021).

Mary Margaret Kreuper, 79, of Los Angeles was charged with one count of wire fraud and one count of money laundering, the U.S. attorney's office said. 

The now retired elementary school principal acknowledged that over a decade ending in 2018, she embezzled about $835,000 in donations, tuition, and fee money from St. James Catholic School in the LA suburb of Torrance.
