Monsignor Waits To Leave Prison After Church Helps Post Bail

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Monsignor William Lynn is still waiting to leave prison after the Archdiocese of Philadelphia helped post his quarter-million-dollars bail.

An appeals court overturned his conviction in a case linked to the priest-sex abuse scandal.

Lynn is the first U.S. church official ever convicted for his handling of abuse claims. He'll be subject to electronic monitoring.

Prosecutors will try to restore the conviction.

The archdiocese tells FOX 29 there are multiple factors to take into account before the monsignor could return to ministry, and it's still too early in the process.
