A Roman Catholic bishop has left court in Canada a free man after admitting he was addicted to child pornography.

Raymond Lahey told the court late last year that he was glad he'd finally been caught.

Lahey, 71, was sentenced to 15 months jail, but has been credited for time already served after he volunteered to spend eight months in solitary confinement. A psychiatrist told the court that Lahey is not a paedophile.

Some feel Lahey was let off too lightly.
