Law professor: Cardinal Pell's high court victory hinged on lower courts' 'stark factual mistake' over timing (Inside Story)

Catholic Culture Wednesday, 15 April 2020
Jeremy Gans, professor at Melbourne Law School, writes that the High Court of Australia judged that a jury (in 2018) and Victoria’s Court of Appeal made a “stark factual mistake” in convicting Cardinal Pell: they believed he had been alone with the choirboys in the cathedral sacristy for five or six minutes, but “on the complainant’s [own] account, the boys must have taken over three minutes to reach the sacristy [after the end of Mass], at which point the hiatus would have been mostly over.”
