DR hopes ex-ambassador convicted

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) – The attorney general of the Dominican Republic says he hopes the Vatican’s former ambassador to the Caribbean nation is convicted of charges that he sexually abused young boys.

The Holy See announced Monday that Jozef Wesolowski has been indicted on charges of sexually abusing Dominican boys and having child pornography on his computer.

Wesolowski will stand trial next month in a Vatican criminal court, the first time such a high-ranking Vatican official has been tried on sex abuse charges.
