The court case ended Friday with a 20-year prison sentence for Martinelly-Montano. But the Post’s Jeremy Borden spoke with the surviving nuns, Sister Charlotte Lange and Sister Connie Ruth Lupton, for the first time, and their words and deeds continue to be inspiring. Please read Borden’s excellent full story here, along with a superb photo gallery by the Post’s Tracy Woodward here.
