Sex Abuse Priest Jailed for 4 Years

September 2, 2010

Dublin based priest Fr Eugene Lewis, unanimously convicted of sexually abusing three sisters in their Co Ferrmanagh home going back almost 50 years, has been jailed for a total of four years in a Belfast Court.

However, the 76-year-old disgraced former head of the White Fathers from their Cypress Grove headquaters in Templeogue Dublin, still maintains his innocence.

In a statement issued through his solicitor Joe McVeigh outside Belfast's Laganside Courthouse, the paedophile priest, also placed on the Sex Offenders' Register for life, claimed that his Co Throne trial in Omagh Crown Court was a "miscarriage of justice".
