Magistrate Belinda Wallington will hand down her decision following a month-long pre-trial hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates' Court. Some other charges against 76-year-old Pell were struck out. At the committal, Ms Wallington said she believed a person should be committed to stand trial unless there was a "fundamental defect" in the evidence.
