Priest guilty
Ex-priest guilty of sex assault

Saturday February 12 2011

A FORMER priest is to be sentenced for indecently assaulting a female more than 30 years ago.

The 79-year-old man, who can't be named for legal reasons, has pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to eight counts of indecently assaulting the woman at two locations in the city on dates between 1980 and 1984.

Defence counsel said his client wished to convey apologies to the victim.

The man was remanded on continuing bail until his sentence hearing in July.
