Den australske kardinal George Pell blev i 2017 tiltalt for 'historiske seksuelle forbrydelser' mod flere formodede ofre.
Den 11. december 2018 blev Pell fundet skyldig i seksuelle overgreb mod to kordrenge i St Patrick's Cathedral i Melbourne i 1996, da Pell var ærkebiskop i byen. Nævningene brugte to dage på at nå frem til en enstemmig afgørelse.
Overgrebene skete, efter at Pell på fersk gerning tog de to drenge på 12 og 13 år i at drikke altervin.
Pell er det mest højtstående medlem af den katolske kirke, som er blevet anklaget og dømt for seksuelle overgreb.

“In 2015, 60 Minutes presented damning new evidence against Pell. He has always argued his intervention on behalf of child abuse victims was innovative, independent and compassionate. But now, secret documents reveal it as a cynical smokescreen designed to protect the Catholic Church at all costs. “
”It's hard to imagine a graver charge. It's against one of the most powerful men in Australia, the man who is now the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney. The accusation is simply this: That Dr George Pell attempted to bribe a distressed young man, who'd been sexually assaulted by a priest - and that Pell did this to cover up a potential scandal and to protect his church. And, as you'll see, there's more. Money offered to silence the family of two young girls, more tragic victims of a predator in the Catholic Church. “
Statement from Cardinal Pell victim following sentencing: "I respect what the judge said, he was meticulous and he was considered...[but] It is hard for me to take comfort in this outcome...everything is overshadowed by the forthcoming appeal."— Christopher Lamb (@ctrlamb) 13. marts 2019
2 days before George Pell learns his fate another Catholic Priest was jailed today for historic crimes against children. Father Michael Endicott was exposed 11 years ago and now justice has finally been served. For his victims it was a day of jubilation and sorrow. @ChrisReason7 pic.twitter.com/TCsd7PdG6S— 7 News Sydney (@7NewsSydney) 11. marts 2019
