Bishop FinnA Missouri judge has convicted Kansas City Bishop Robert Finn of failing to report suspected child abuse, making him the most senior U.S. Catholic official found guilty in the long-running scandal involving sexually abusive priests.

Jackson County Circuit Court Judge John Torrence acquitted Finn of another count of failing to report suspicions of child abuse. The judge sentenced Finn to two years of unsupervised probation, then suspended the sentence. Finn was also ordered to be trained on reporting abuse.
