TWO PRIESTS ACCUSED IN VATICAN’S FIRST SEXUAL ABUSE TRIAL

Gabriele Martinelli, 28, is accused of sexually assaulting an altar boy between 2007 and 2012 while Enrico Radice, 72, is charged with covering up the alleged assault while he was rector of the theological school where it is claimed the abuse happened.

Two Catholic priests have gone on trial in the Vatican, marking the first time the city state has prosecuted a case of alleged sexual abuse.

Neither man has submitted a plea or commented on the case.

While scores of priests have faced abuse charges around the world, the Vatican has never held a trial concerning allegations of sexual abuse within its own walls.
