Pope Francis Accepts Australian Archbishop's Resignation

Pope Francis has accepted Australian Archbishop  Philip Wilson's resignation  after he was convicted of covering up child sexual abuse.  Back in May, Wilson was  found guilty  of not telling police that a fellow priest had abused two altar boys in the 1970s.

That priest was found guilty of multiple counts of sexual assault in 2004 and died in jail two years later.  After Wilson's conviction, he stepped aside from his duties as Adelaide's archbishop but resisted calls for his resignation.  Earlier this month,  Wilson was sentenced  to serve a year in detention and will be eligible for parole after six months.  Wilson is the highest-ranking Catholic official ever to be convicted of covering up child sexual abuse.
