(WKBW) - A Western New York nun is now heading to jail, after confessing to stealing money from local churches.

Sister Mary Ann Rapp was sentenced to 90 days in the Orleans County Jail, five years probation and one hundred community service hours.

She also has to pay $128-thousand in restitution to the churches that she stole from.

Prosecutors say the nun stole money from two churches she worked at, and then gambled away the money at casinos to feed a gambling addition.
