WA priest charged with child sex offences

A former Perth priest, now 83, has been accused of further historical child sex offences after he was charged three months ago with indecently assaulting seven children.

Police charged the man again on Friday, alleging he indecently assaulted a seven-year-old girl in 1970 when he was a priest at a Carlisle church.

The same man was charged in April with a string of offences after he allegedly indecently assaulted seven boys and girls, aged between six and 12 at the time of the first offence, between 1979 and 1992 while he was a priest in Shenton Park.
