A judge has reserved sentencing in a high-profile sex abuse case involving a former archbishop.

Court of Queens justice Christopher Mainella said Wednesday he will deliver a sentence to Kenneth (Seraphim) Storheim on July 9 after the former archbishop in the Orthodox Church in America was convicted in January of sexually abusing a young altar boy in the ’80s.

The Crown is seeking a 12-month jail term, while the defence argued a conditional sentence is adequate.
