He probably should be. With a male-only clergy forbidden from having sex with women and given a seemingly never-ending supply of young boys, one should expect a certain self-selection of candidates for priesthood.

Cardinal Pell of Australia has been found guilty of pederasty. The Pope reacted by "demoting" him: he's no longer in the College of Cardinals Advisors (a group of nine Catholic cardinals appointed by Pope Francis to serve as his advisers) but he's still a Cardinal it would seem.
If I were Pope, he'd have been kicked out of the Church, period.
In December 2018, Pell was convicted of the sexual abuse of two boys in the 1990s, after a jury returned a unanimous guilty verdict. He is due to be sentenced in February 2019. Following the conviction Pell was removed from the Pope's Council of Cardinal Advisers.

If I were Pope, 

You first have to study Theology and Canon Law I, II and III. Are you up for that?

BTW how's your Latin these days?

I wonder if the tourist scrap iron on Pont des Arts  in Paris can be monetised? 
It is cropping up everywhere these days. Even saw it in a Derbyshire village.

Penny wise, pound foolish, what?
It's throwing good money at bad.
