Pell taken into custody for sex crimes
Cardinal George Pell has been taken into custody and will spend his first night in a jail cell for sexually abusing two choirboys in a Melbourne cathedral.
Pell will be sentenced on March 13.
Pell was found guilty in December of orally raping a 13-year-old boy and molesting another after Sunday mass at St Patrick's Cathedral in East Melbourne in 1996.
At the conclusion of a pre-sentence hearing on Wednesday, Pell was remanded in custody by County Court Chief Judge Peter Kidd.
