The senior Catholic will walk free after he was convicted of sexually abusing two 13-year-old choirboys.
Pell, once the third-most-powerful figure in the Roman Catholic Church, was convicted of molesting two choir boys in Australia more than two decades ago.
Pell is the highest-ranking member of the Catholic Church to be convicted of such crimes.
Pope Francis has accepted the resignations of Australia's Archbishop Philip Wilson and the U.S.'s Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.
McCarrick has been ordered to conduct a "life of prayer and penance" until a church trial is held.
Archbishop Philip Wilson knew about the abuse of four boys dating back to the 1970s and did nothing.
The EPA knew Vatican treasurer George Pell was under investigation, but went ahead with the dinner during Pruitt's trip to Italy.
He is the most senior member of the church to be accused of such crimes.
I do not think that Law deserves an express train to heaven or the welcoming arms of the Redeemer, who had very harsh words for anyone who harms children.
Pell appeared in Australian court on Wednesday for a brief preliminary hearing to set the pace of upcoming proceedings.
