Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia monsignor convicted of child endangerment for sending a priest suspected of abuse to a new parish will remain behind bars until he’s sentenced.
Judge M. Teresa Sarmina agreed Thursday with prosecutors who say Monsignor William Lynn should be treated like any other felon and remain jailed until his sentencing hearing.
Lynn’s attorneys say their client isn’t a flight risk and argued for his release on house arrest. But prosecutors say other defendants in Lynn’s situation wouldn’t be accommodated the same way.
Sarmina did approve a defense request to move sentencing up from Aug. 13 to July 24. Lynn faces 3½ to seven years in prison.
Lynn was the first U.S. church official ever convicted for his handling of abuse complaints. His attorneys plan to appeal.

40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
