Australia: Cardinal George Pell to be sentenced on Wednesday

Pell's conviction has sent shock waves through the Catholic church.

    The most senior Catholic figure ever convicted of child abuse will learn on Wednesday how long he will spend in jail.

    In December, Cardinal George Pell was convicted of five counts of sexually abusing two choirboys in the Australian city of Melbourne.
