The PA Superior Court recently reversed the conviction of Monsignor Lynn for his role in placing known pedophile priests in churches where they would have contact with children. On this month’s Crime and Punishment, we will consider the implications of that case for the prosecution of Penn State officials in the Jerry Sandusky scandal with former PA Attorney General Walter Cohen.
