A FORMER Catholic priest has been charged with 43 new historical child sex charges after 12 more alleged victims came forward.
David Joseph Perrett was charged with the fresh counts by Armidale detectives and now faces a total of 52 offences, accused of abusing 16 different children.
Detectives allege Perrett, who was a Catholic priest in the New England, molested the children between 1970 and 1986.
He remains on conditional bail after the DPP tried unsuccessfully to have the now 80-year-old’s bail revoked in Armidale Local Court.
