PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Roman Catholic church official could be sent back to prison over his handling of abuse complaints after his Pennsylvania conviction was reinstated.

Monsignor William Lynn of Philadelphia will ask to remain free Thursday while he pursues other appeals.

Lynn has served half of a three- to six-year sentence for felony child endangerment. He has been on house arrest since the state Superior Court threw out his conviction.
