A Catholic priest accused of child sexual abuse thirty years ago has indicated he intends to plead not guilty.
Glenn Humphreys is accused of sexually abusing a teenage boy between 1983 and 1986.
Mr Humphreys was charged last year with four counts of unlawful and indecent assault and one charge each of carnal knowledge and attempted carnal knowledge.
He was not required to attend Perth Magistrate's Court this morning, with his lawyer Seamus Rafferty saying he was reporting to police in New South Wales where he now lives.
Mr Rafferty told the court Mr Humphreys intended to plead not guilty to the charges.
Mr Humphreys is due to appear in the District Court in April.
