Bishop guilty of shielding pedophile priest

Bishop Robert W. Finn was found guilty Thursday on one count of failing to report suspected child abuse, becoming the first Roman Catholic bishop in the United States in the decades-long sexual abuse scandals to be convicted of shielding a pedophile priest.

The charges each carried a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine, but Finn received a sentence of two years of court-supervised probation.
