Cardinal George Pell, who has been accused of sexually assaulting boys, walked free from prison Tuesday after Australia’s highest court overturned his conviction. Pell was sentenced to six years in jail last year for sexually abusing underage boys and is the highest-ranking member of the Catholic Church to have been convicted of a sexual crime. He had been found guilty of multiple criminal acts and the abuse of two choir boys in 1996. Pell served as the Vatican’s chief financial officer.
