A Catholic priest from Norwich is facing jail after he was found guilty of sexually abusing a teenage boy at a children’s home.
Father Anthony McSweeney, 68, preyed on the vulnerable youngster while working at Grafton Close Children’s Home in Hounslow, west London, between 1979 and 1981.
Obese McSweeney, whose church was St George’s on Sprowston Road, was also found guilty of making indecent images of children.
He preyed on the boy with his close friend John Stingemore, 72, who managed the care home and was found dead in January – weeks before his trial.
