Without oversight, scores of accused priests commit crimes

This undated photo posted to Facebook in 2017 shows Jerome Bernard Robben. Three decades earlier, Robben, a St. Louis Catholic high school teacher; and James A. Funke, a priest, went to prison for sexually abusing male students together. In 2017, this social media account identified Robben _ wearing a crown and gold vestments _ as the leader of a Russian Byzantine order raising money to build a monastery in Nevada.
