Catholic nun admits stealing school funds
LOS ANGELES (INT) Federal prosecutors Tuesday filed charges against a now-retired nun who was the principal of a Catholic elementary school in Torrance and who has agreed to plead guilty to fraud and money laundering charges.

Mary Margaret Kreuper, 79, was accused of stealing more than $835,000 in school funds to pay for personal expenses, including gambling trips.

Under a plea agreement, Kreuper agreed to plead guilty to the two charges that carry a maximum statutory penalty of 40 years in federal prison.

For a period of 10 years ending in September 2018, Kreuper embezzled money from St. James Catholic School. She held the position as principal for 28 years.
