A survivor of clerical sexual abuse is devastated at news Cardinal George Pell has walked free.
The 78-year-old was one year into a six year prison sentence.
Today, Australia's highest court unanimously agreed to quash his five charges of historical child sexual abuse.
Pete Dillon told Heather du Plessis-Allan all abuse survivors have been let down.
"The legal system has essentially catastrophically failed us, as the message it is sending to survivors is it doesn't matter how much you think you are heard, you are not heard, you are not believed, you are not understood."
