Nun faces sex allegations involving up to 13 cases

A Roman Catholic nun is facing up to 13 allegations of sexual abuse against a minor.

The Poder Judicial identified her by the last name of Mejia and said that prosecutors are seeking restrictions, including that she exercise no type of religious activity.

The woman, 28, appeared with her lawyer for questioning Wednesday, the Poder Judicial said.

She was working with a private children’s home in San Joaquín de Flores, Heredia. The home had a contract with the Patronato Nacional de la Infancia, which filed the initial complaint. The home has since been closed.
