“Prayerful And Devout” Employee Rips Off NY Archdiocese For More Than $1 Million

But she prayed and went to Mass every day!

Anita Collins, 67, was wearing a crucifix and handcuffs at her arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court for grand larceny and falsifying business records — charges that could send her to jail for up to 25 years if she is convicted. The white-haired bookkeeper alternately prayed and glared at the news photographers as investigators laid out her alleged scam. She did not enter a plea and was ordered held on $750,000 bail. “She held herself out to be a religious woman going to church every day,” said Assistant District Attorney Amy Justiniano said. “Yet, behind their backs she would lie and steal.”

Compared to their kiddie-fucking payouts, the Archdiocese will probably just file this loss under “miscellaneous.” Meanwhile Collins will go to confession, be ordered to say ten “my bads,” and she’ll be square with the house.
