Roman Catholic priests at an Argentinian school for the deaf allegedly raped and sodomized children with impunity – and a nun helped them.
Investigators say Kumiko lived at the school from 2004-2012.
I am a good person that has given my life to God.” I’m innocent,” the Japanese-born nun said. “I knew nothing of the abuses, I watched over the children. “I did not know about the abuses.
Authorities say Kosaka Kumiko, 42, has been arrested and charged with aiding and abetting the perverted priests’ sickening antics.
Corbacho, fellow priest Nicola Corradi and three other men were busted last year after they were charged with sexually abusing two dozen students at the school.
Corradi was the apparent ring leader. He had earlier been accused of being involved in the abuse of hundreds of students at a school in Italy.
She was also charged with physically abusing students at the Antonio Provolo Institute for children with hearing impairment in northwestern Mendoza province.

She turned herself into cops after a month on the run.
A former student told detectives that Kumiko forced her to wear a diaper to cover bleeding after the child was allegedly raped by priest Horacio Corbacho.
Advocates for clerical sex abuse victims are furious that Corradi – a poster boy for priestly wrongdoing – wasn’t sanctioned by the Vatican.
