CWN Editor's Note: “In my view, your conduct was permeated by staggering arrogance,” Judge Peter Kidd said as he sentenced Pell to 6 years in prison, with a minimum sentence of 3 years and 8 months before eligibility for parole. The prelate, who denies the allegations, faced a maximum sentence of 50 years and is appealing his conviction. The Associated Press also published an article on the testimony against Pell.
