The butler was in a Vatican prison cell for 60 days. But since July 21st, he has been under house arrest inside his residence, which is within Vatican State territory. There, he lives with his wife and two children.

At this point, his activities are monitored, but according to the Vatican's spokesperson, he has access to "medical assistance, spiritual help, visits and he may attend Mass accompanied.”
