Vienna (kath.net) Because of arson at Neustadter Cathedral and severe property damage, a 15 year old has been condemned to a condition 20 month sentence. The National Court of Vienna/Neustadt gave a relatively mild sentence because of the "very youthful age" of the defendant and and his customarily orderly manner of life and finally his carpentry school. The defendant has received time to think it over, the judgement is still not executed. The Cathedral burnt in March of 2012, which kath.net reported, and has been closed till the completion of renovation at the end of September.
The youth had initially confessed to the Cathedral Provost after the act, and was forgiven by the Provost and recommended the possibility of accomplishing community service, continued ORF. In the negotiations the 15 year old had at first denied the act, then however the exact course of events fell to him. The judge explained in his sentencing, that the most significant concern of the boy had been that he didn't want his father to learn of it.
