Australia Cardinal Pell Sentenced to Prison

According to Reuters, previous Vatican treasurer Cardinal George Pell has been sentenced to six years in jail by an Australian court for sexually abusing two choir boys during the 1990s at St Patrick’s Cathedral in Melbourne.

The 77 year old is the highest ranking Catholic priest worldwide to ever be convicted for child sex offences.

Pell was originally found guilty in December, and has maintained his stance that he is innocent.

He has filed an appeal on three grounds, set to be heard in June.
