Top cardinal gets 6 years jail in Australia

Melbourne
Disgraced Australian Cardinal George Pell was on Wednesday sentenced to six years in prison for the “brazen” sexual abuse of two choirboys, in what the judge lambasted as a “grave” abuse of power. The former Vatican number three — who managed church finances and helped elect two popes — was sentenced in a Melbourne court on five counts, including oral rape and molestation of the boys in 1996-1997.—AFP
