Trial phone sex chat australia

This Broken Rites article gives some background about how a Catholic priest, Father Robert Claffey, committed sexual offences against children (mostly boys) while the Catholic Church transferred him around parishes in western Victoria for 14 years between 19.

Some of Claffey's victims began contacting Broken Rites in 1993, and Broken Rites gave each victim a Victoria Police phone number where the victim could have a chat with child-protection detectives.

In 1989, the Wollongong Catholic diocese (south of Sydney) was warned that Father Peter Lewis Comensoli was sexually abusing boys in his parish, but the church authorities allowed him to continue in parish work. Police then charged Comsensoli and he was jailed in 1994.

But the church failed to laicize him and he was listed as "Reverend" for the next 16 years, until his name finally vanished from church directories in 2010 — 16 years after his conviction.

He is currently awaiting sentence in the Melbourne County Court regarding these five boys.

Meanwhile, in a separate court case in early 2018, Mc Namara has been sentenced to a short term in jail regarding On 24 July 2014 a Catholic priest, Father Patrick Holmes (then aged 79), was jailed for sexually abusing two young girls in Western Australia many years ago (one girl in 1969 and the other girl about 1981).

This prompted more of Mc Namara's former students to contact the detectives.

This Broken Rites article reveals how the Catholic Church harboured a child-sex abuser, Marist Brother Gerard Joseph Mc Namara, teaching in Catholic schools, for four decades until some of his victims began speaking (separately) to the Victoria Police child-protection detectives.

When the police charged Mc Namara regarding the first batch of these victims, the Marists enthusiastically supported Mc Namara and ignored the victims.

Since then, two additional alleged victims have contacted police and, as a result, Claffey (still in jail) faced court again on 28 June 2018 (with a trial to be held on a later date) regarding these new charges.

Broken Rites is doing further research about Father Robert James Hickman, who became a Catholic priest in Sydney in the 1970s.
