Monsignor William Lynn was denied bail on Monday. His lawyers went to court to ask that the convicted priest be released on bail during the appeals process.

Lynn was convicted of felony child endangerment in June and sentenced to serve three to six years behind bars.

He was the first U.S. church official to be convicted over his handling of complaints of pedophile priests.

Lynn served as secretary for clergy at the Philadelphia Archdiocese from 1992 to 2004.
