Judge Issues Arrest Warrant for Nun Accused of Sexual Assault

September 14, 2007

Milwaukee — A Milwaukee County judge has issued an arrest warrant for a nun accused of sexually assaulting two boys at a Milwaukee school in the 1960s.

Sister Norma Giannini was supposed to appear in court Friday morning for a pre-trial hearing and did not show up, citing health reasons.

She has missed two previous hearings.

Her two alleged victims said she took sexual advantage of them when they were only 12 and 13 years old at St. Patrick's Church on Milwaukee's south side.

If convicted, she could face up to 20 years in prison.
