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 Patrickโ€™s Cathedral in Melbourne.

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