Former Adelaide Archbishop Philip Wilson to serve sentence in home detention

FORMER Adelaide Archbishop Philip Wilson will serve his sentence for concealing historical child sex abuse in home detention.

The 67-year-old appeared in Newcastle Courthouse on Tuesday morning, where he was granted permission to serve out his 12-month sentence at a relative’s house instead of prison.

It’s understood he will wear a tracking device and will be eligible for parole in six-months.


It comes after Wilson resigned as Archbishop of Adelaide last month after being found guilty of concealing the sexual abuse of children.
