Pell victim says 'hard to take comfort' from sentencingThe former choirboy molested by Australian Cardinal George Pell said Wednesday it was “hard to take comfort” from the Vatican official’s sentence of six years in prison for the crime. Pell was sentenced in the County Court of Victoria after being found guilty of five counts of sexual and indecent assault in the sacristy of a Melbourne cathedral in 1996 and 1997. Chief Justice Peter Kidd told the court the 77-year-old would be eligible for parole after serving a minimum term of three years and eight months.
