White Collar Crime

1 x 52'

Featuring the only interview with the Irish priest at the centre of the Florida priests scandal, White Collar Crime is the inside story of the biggest financial crisis to hit the Catholic Church in the US. 81-year-old Fr. John Skehan, originally from Ireland, speaks exclusively just weeks before he begins his 14-month sentence for Grand Theft. In an emotional interview Fr. Skehan denies that he took millions to fund a lavish lifestyle, claiming instead he used the money for the benefit of parishioners. And from inside prison Fr. Francis Guinan who has begun a four-year sentence for his part in the crime, defends his use of church funds for gambling trips and property investment.
