Article: Australian Priest Convicted of Sex Abuse is Released, but his Survivors Could Still See Justice
In a shocking ruling, Australia’s High Court has overturned the conviction of Cardinal George Pell, the highest-ranking Roman Catholic leader ever found guilty in the church’s clergy pedophilia crisis. The church’s legal battles regarding Pell are likely far from over, however, as new claims against the disgraced 78-year-old cardinal surface.
In March 2019, Pell, who was the Vatican’s chief financial officer and an adviser to Pope Francis, was sentenced to six years in prison for molesting two 13-year-old boys after Sunday Mass in 1996. The decision was later upheld by a three-judge panel in Victoria state’s Court of Appeal in a split 2-1 verdict.
