Montreal’s Catholic Archbishop says a priest who molested a young girl and made inappropriate gestures to another — is not a pedophile.

48-year-old Phillippe de Maupéou pleaded guilty to the charges and served 6 months in the community.

De Maupéou made headlines yesterday, after it was learned the church gave him $60 000 to pay for law school.

Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte says he’s not a pedophile — he just made a mistake.
