Christian Brother Robert Best to spend at least another decade in jail for abuse. Old, sick and incontinent, paedophile Robert Best will in all probability die in jail, after being ordered to spend at least another decade behind bars for sexually abusing 20 boys at Victorian schools as a Christian Brother.
His legal fees are still being met by the church. Judge Chettle said last month he was stunned to learn the Christian Brothers spent at least $1.5 million defending Best.
The Christian Brothers have not moved to expel him despite what Judge Chettle called “the obvious disgrace” Best had brought the order.
