Nuns em­bez­zled $500,000 from Tor­rance school

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

Two long­time nuns at St. James Catholic School in Tor­rance al­legedly em­bez­zled as much as $500,000 in tu­ition, fees and dona­tions, per­haps spend­ing some of the money on trips and gam­bling at casi­nos while telling par­ents the school was op­er­at­ing on a shoe­string bud­get, of­fi­cials and par­ents said.

The fig­ure rep­re­sents only what au­di­tors have been able to trace in six years’ of bank records and might not in­clude other cash trans­ac­tions, of­fi­cials from the Arch­dio­cese of LA told par­ents and alumni at a meet­ing Mon­day at St. James Catholic Church in Re­dondo Beach.
