A woman claiming she was raped by a monk 30 years ago is angry he won't punished for the crime.

Anne McInnis left Cullman County Court emotional. Charges against the man she accused of raping her decades ago were dropped.

"It was immensely difficult for me personally. It has affected my life," says Anne McInnis.

McInnis says she was raped by a Benedictine Monk at Saint Bernard's Abbey in Cullman in 1971.
