The Catholic hierarchy are copping it in Australia:
Adelaide Archbishop Philip Wilson has been put on notice that he could expect a
jail term after he was found guilty on Tuesday of concealing historical child abuse
allegations against another priest.
In a landmark decision that could have wide-reaching implications for other high-
ranking clergy members, Magistrate Robert Stone found Archbishop Wilson had
been told by a 15-year-old boy in 1976 that he had been indecently assaulted by
notorious Hunter paedophile priest Father James Fletcher, but chose not to go to
the authorities despite believing the allegations were true.
Archbishop Wilson, now the most senior Catholic cleric in the world to be found
guilty of failing to report child sexual abuse to police, faces the maximum of two
years in jail when he is sentenced on June 19.
