An Italian priest on Tuesday got four and a half years for sex abuse of minors.

A court in the Sicilian town of Enna convicted Don Giuseppe Rugolo of aggravated sexual violence against minors.

The probe stemmed from a complaint from a man who is now 30, Antonio Messina, who said he had been abused from 2009 to 2013.
