‘Cardinal George Pell’, Convicted Child Abuser, Still In Prison, In Australia, LOSES His Appeal.

by Anura Guruge

George Pell (b. 1941, 78-years old) was convicted of ‘sodomy’
in December 2018.

He was given a 6-year prison sentence
with 3 years 8 months compulsory (i.e., no-parole).

He has been serving that sentence since at least February 2019 (if not earlier).

So, by a 2-1 decision (by a panel of three-judges) his current conviction was UPHELD, but he was given the option of filing an appeal with the ‘High Court’ — the final court of appeal in Australia.

Earlier in the year Pell had claimed that he WOULD NOT APPEAL if he lost the June 2019 appeal. He has LOST, but, he, of course, can’t be trusted. I am sure there will be another appeal.

But, he REMAINS in prison BUT, the good thing for him, is that the clock is inexorably ticking away. He has now served 6-months of his mandatory sentence. He could seek parole in 3 years and 2 months.

The Vatican and the pope are standing behind him — of, bloody, course.

Stay tuned.
