Choirmaster in notorious sexual abuse case handed prison sentence

Former choirmaster Bohumíl Kulínský has been sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison for sexually abusing teenage members of his choir. On Thursday, the High Court in Prague overruled a previous verdict which handed the former head of Bambini di Praga choir a three year suspended sentence for having sexually abused 40 of his female charges. The Prague court ruled that Mr Kulínský should be banned from working with young people for the next ten years. Three of the girls the choirmaster was charged with abusing were under 15 years of age.
