Priest jailed for harassing nun during confession

An Italian priest has been jailed for 14 months for sexually harassing a nun while taking her confession.

The middle-aged priest, who has not been named, was sentenced by a court at Voghera in northern Italy.

The nun told the court that she was terrified by the priest's advances.

But she said it took her a long time to decide whether or not to call the police, reports the Caltanet website.
