SIMCOE -- A former Port Dover priest now in London pleaded guilty yesterday to sexually abusing two former altar boys.

Konstanty Przybylski, 56, was released on bail after his plea, to be sentenced later.

Norfolk Crown Attorney John Ayre said the first victim said assaults began in 1995 with various sexual acts taking place in Przybylski's home attached to St. Cecilia's and on a Chicago trip.

During a probe into those complaints, police learned of a second complainant who said he'd been assaulted on trips to Rome, Poland and Chicago. He received a car and other gifts from the priest.

In both cases, the victims reported the abuse to officials of the Diocese of London which, court heard, requested they not report the matters to police.
