Ex-priest charged over child sex in NSW


A former priest will be charged in court with sexually assaulting a teenager 40 years ago in northern New South Wales.

A year ago, detectives from the Richmond Police District began investigating reports that a boy, then 14, was sexually abused at church property in Mallanganee – about 40 kilometers away west of Casino – in 1982.

Police said a 74-year-old man was arrested at the Casino police station on Tuesday and charged with sexual assault and indecent assault on a person under the age of 16.

They allege the former priest invited the boy to his home before sexually assaulting him.

The man was granted strict conditional bail to appear in Kyogle Local Court on Thursday.
