Cardinal George Pell

Recommended Posts

If Savile and Rolf have their own threads, Pell deserves one, too.

 

George Pell is 77 years old, has heart trouble (though that may have been a sham to avoid flying home to face trial) and is due to have knee reconstruction work. Yet to be sentenced though judging by the judge's comments, he's had it:

Defence barrister Robert Richter QC argued on Wednesday that Pell's offending was at the low end of the scale and had no aggravating features.

 

"It must be clear by now I am struggling with that," Judge Kidd replied, hitting back.

 

The judge later struck down another controversial argument from Mr Richter with a simple "don't say it".

 

Judge Kidd said Pell engaged in shocking conduct that allowed no innocent explanation.

 

"At the moment I see this as callous, brazen offending. Blatant," he said.

 

 

10 years is the standard sentence for this kind of crime, putting him at 87 when he is released.

It's 10 years per offence, I think, so it could be longer, easy.
