Without oversight, scores of accused priests commit crimes

This combination of 2019 and 2017 photos made available by the Missouri State Highway Patrol shows James Alan Funke, left, and Jerome Bernard Robben. Three decades earlier, Funke, a Catholic priest; and Robben, a fellow teacher at a St. Louis Catholic high school, went to prison for sexually abusing male students together. Funke, released in 1995, was eventually bounced from the priesthood. But years later, the two men joined together again, promoting Robben as the leader of a church of his own making.
