Washington Post
March 15, 1997

A former Roman Catholic priest will begin serving an 18-month prison sentence Monday for molesting a boy more than 30 years ago at a church in Kensington. James Finan, 64, pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of unnatural and perverted sex practices.

Finan most recently was pastor of St. Nicholas Church in Laurel. The victim, who is 41, contacted Montgomery County police last year.
