CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Philip Wilson of Adelaide, Australia, has been sentenced to a one-year prison term, after having been convicted in May of failing to report sexual abuse.

Archbishop Wilson stepped aide from active ministry, but did not resign, after his conviction.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
