Jury trial is set for Sept. 24 for Bishop Robert Finn and the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph on misdemeanor charges of failing to report suspected abuse.

The prosecution contends that Bishop Finn and the diocese were legally obligated to report suspected child abuse to state authorities under Missouri law but failed to do so for six months after the discovery of child pornography on a church computer. The charge against Bishop Finn carries a maximum penalty of a $1,000 fine and one year in jail. The diocese faces a fine of up to $5,000.
