Archbishop appeals case
FORMER Adelaide Archbishop Philip Wilson is pursuing an appeal against his conviction for covering up child sex abuse in the NSW Hunter Region.
Wilson’s case was mentioned briefly for the first time in Newcastle District Court yesterday, a fortnight after being told he could serve a 12month jail term in home detention.
Judge Roy Ellis has set down two days for hearings in October. Wilson, 67, lodged the appeal on August 14 immediately after he was ordered to serve home detention.
