A former Church of England priest has been jailed for 12 years for torturing and sexually abusing two schoolboys in the 1980s and 90s.
Jonathan Graves, 60, of Eastbourne, East Sussex, restrained the children, who were aged between 12 and 14, using belts and chains, and then beat them.
At the time, he was the vicar at St Luke’s Church in Stone Cross.
He was convicted on Thursday at Hove Crown Court of 12 offences dating between 1987 and 1992.
