Cardinal George Pell Found Guilty Of Child Sexual Abuse
Cardinal George Pell, 77, has been found guilty of child sexual abuse after a trial in Melbourne.
Australia’s most senior Catholic was found guilty by a Victorian jury on December 11 in Melbourne.
The news can only now be reported due to a suppression order.
The offences occurred in December 1996 and early 1997 at St Patrick’s Cathedral when Pell was an archbishop.
Mr Pell is appealing the convictions.
