Pedophile Nsw Ex-priest Awaits Sentence

Bay 93.9
April 7, 2016

A former priest convicted of 62 child sex offences involving the sinister abuse of 12 victims targeted kids in a church, a pool and during car trips.

A disabled girl repeatedly raped by a pedophile priest thought the abuse was "OK with God".

The girl was one of 12 children groomed and molested by former Catholic priest John Joseph Farrell, 62, in a decade-long period of abuse at Moree and Tamworth, in NSW's north, during the 1980s.

She was abused from the age of 10 by Farrell, who had been moved from one parish after a "scandal that he had been sexually abusing the altar boys", the victim, who can't be identified, said in a statement tendered to Sydney's District Court on Friday.
