Omaha Nun Says Priest Interfered With Sentencing

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA (KPTM) - The Omaha nun sentenced 3-5 years for embezzling money from the Catholic Church now claims the priest of the judge who sentenced her influenced her sentence.

73-year-old Barbara Markey was sentenced two weeks ago for stealing $250,000 from the Archdiocese.

Markey's attorney tells KPTM FOX 42 News that he has filed to withdraw her guilty plea, and is asking for the court to reconsider her sentence.

Her attorney also claims that the judge who setenced Markey was influenced by his own priest, who he says wrote a letter asking for a harsher sentence.

Markey was fired from the Archdiocese in January 2006 after irregularities arose during an audit.
