A clergyman in the United States found guilty of covering-up claims of child sex abuse, has been sentenced to up to six years in prison.
Monsignor William Lynn will serve at least three years for endangering the victim of a former priest convicted in 1999 of sexual assault.
The priest was sent to live in a new parish, where he assaulted an altar boy.
Lynn supervised hundreds of priests in his role as secretary for clergy at the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
He was convicted last month - the most senior clergyman to be convicted in connection to the Catholic Church scandal in the United States.
Prosecutiors had sought a maximum sentence of seven years in prison.
