Two Roman Catholic priests and a school employee in Argentina have been charged with sexual abuse and corruption of minors.

An Argentinian court convicted priests Nicola Corradi and Horacio Corbacho to 42 and 45 years in prison, respectively, and Armando Gomez, a school employee, to 18 years.

The allegations were made by 20 alumni of Mendoza's Antonio Provolo Institute for the Deaf. The sentences, which cannot be appealed, came down on Monday, which was also the three-year mark since the accusations were first made.
