Part A. Monsignor admits stealing from church.
Las Vegas- For years, Msgr. Kevin McAuliffe lived a double life.
He was widely admired by his flock at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, which he helped build into one of the largest Roman Catholic parishes in the Las Vegas area. But at the same time, he was stealing money from the church.
Over nearly a decade, he pocketed $650,000. His motive was all too familiar in Nevada.
McAuliffe was a gambling addict.
On Friday, U.S. District Judge James C. Mahan sentenced the priest, who pleaded guilty to charges stemming from the thefts, to more than three years in prison and ordered him to pay restitution. In doing so, the judge waved off the defense's request to give McAuliffe probation.
