Nun sentenced for sex crimes in 1960s

Georgia Pabst reports in the NewsWatch Weblog of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on the conviction of Sister Norma Giannini, 79, on two counts of two felony counts of indecent behavior with a child. The charges arose out of activities in the 1960s involving two boys who were students at a Catholic school at which she was principal.
It's unclear when anyone first alerted authorites in the church or law enforcement about the activity, but in 1996, when the Milwaukee Archdiocese Response to Sexual Abuse panel questioned her, she said, "I thought I was in love with both of them," according to court records.

She was charged as a result of court proceedings in 2006.
