Vatican Leak Scandal

Court convicts computer programmer

A Vatican court yesterday convicted a computer programmer employed by the world's tiniest state for helping Pope Benedict XVI's butler engineer a series of leaks that embarrassed the Vatican.

The court handed 48-year-old Claudio Sciarpelletti a suspended sentence of two months in prison with a probationary term of five years, meaning that if he respects the terms of his probation he will likely not have to go to prison.
