Sentencing for laicized priest

The online L.A. Times has a story (click on this post's title) about the sentencing today of L.A. laicized priest George Miller, 70, to three years in prison for molesting a boy. The story says:

"[Miller] pleaded guilty in December to molesting the child between 1988 and 1989 and admitted sexually abusing at least three other boys after the archdiocese received its first complaint in 1977 about Miller molesting a child...

"An attorney for the victims said Miller was placed on leave in 1996 after he was accused a third time of molestation. Church officials said he never returned to the ministry and was reduced to lay status by the pope in 2005.

"Miller was among the priests whose personnel files were the subject of a vigorous legal battle when [L.A. Cardinal Roger] Mahony fought against turning them over to the Los Angeles County grand jury."
