The Kerala High Court awarded lifer to a priest, who had repeatedly molested a minor girl in front of her siblings.
Earlier, the family of a temple priest who was burnt alive refused to cremate his body on Saturday till their demands were fulfilled by the state government.
After the inflamed argument, five accused sprinkled petrol and set the fence on fire, in which the priest was also severely injured. He succumbed to burn injuries and died yesterday late evening in a hospital.
Attorney General, Dana Nessel said that the priests served in dioceses in Detroit, Lansing and Kalamazoo, and that they've been charged with various counts of criminal sexual conduct.
Under the new measure, every diocese around the world is obliged by June 2020 to create a system for the reporting of sexual abuse by clerics, the use of child pornography and cover-ups of abuse.
The priest, Fr Conceicao D'Silva, faced a probe by election officials, after a video of his controversial speech went viral on social media.
