A Vatican court has convicted a Holy See computer technician of helping the former papal butler in the theft of confidential papal documents and given him a two-month suspended sentence.


Claudio Sciarpelletti, an Italian who is a computer program analyst in the Vatican's Secretariat of State, had testified earlier Saturday that he had played no role in helping to spirit out confidential documents in a scandal involving alleged corruption in the Vatican bureaucracy. (AP)
