Court to decide George Pell’s fate

Convicted child sex offender Cardinal George Pell is set to be remanded in custody after he walks into Melbourne’s County Court on Wednesday morning.

In the most sensational verdict since the Catholic Church became engulfed in worldwide abuse scandals, Pell was found guilty by a jury in December of orally raping a 13-year-old choirboy in 1996 and molesting another at St Patrick’s Cathedral in East Melbourne.

A large media pack has gathered outside the County Court awaiting Pell’s arrival ahead of the pre-sentence hearing.

Yet lawyers have launched a last-ditch attempt at sparing the cardinal from serving any time in jail, by having him apply for bail before the Court of Appeal.
