An Australian appeals court on Wednesday upheld a guilty ruling against Cardinal George Pell. A Victoria judge earlier this year sentenced him to six years in prison for molesting two 13-year-old choirboys nearly 20 years ago. The Victoria Court of Appeal rejected Pell’s appeal in a 2-1 ruling. The 78-year-old former finance minister to Pope Francis has continued to maintain his innocence.
