In strange and puzzling development in California, two nuns stole $500,000 from a Catholic school and used the money on gambling and vacations. Sister Mary Margaret Kreuper and Sister Lana Lang of St. James Catholic School in Torrance had been diverting funds from the school to their own bank account for at least 10 years, the Press-Telegram reports.

Kreuper, who was the school’s principal, handled all tuition checks and fees. She even withheld some checks and deposited them into an account only she and Chang knew about.

The two sisters offered some of the stolen money back to the school; the rest was used for their “personal gain.”

Kreuper and Chang used the stolen money on sightseeing trips and casino gambling.

The council of District of Columbia (DC) has moved further closer to the realisation of the bill that would make sports betting legalised in the state. The second and final vote on the “Sports Wagering Lottery Amendment Act of 2018” is expected to be held in the December 18 legislative session.

The DC council decides to move quickly as the neighbouring states, such as Maryland and Virginia, are seen as moving fast.

However, David Grosso, one of the members of the council that voted against the bill, said that it is possible that they are moving too fast: “This rush to make D.C. the first jurisdiction in the region to legalise sports betting gives me great pause as we do not fully understand the impact it will have on our communities.”

The bill establishes two categories of licences, one for establishments such as restaurants and bars, and one for major sports stadiums in city limits. Another member of the Council said that he expects to have a sports betting market ready to start for the 2019 baseball season.
