Paedophile priest sentenced to nearly a decade in prison

Retired priest - Francis McDermott - who was found guilty 18 counts of child sexual abuse in Norwich and other parishes throughout the country, has been sentenced to nine years and eleven months in prison.

His crimes date back to the 1970's, and a number of his victims stood up in court to give their statements. 

He abused children in Norwich, London, and High Wycombe. 

Before his retirement he also preached in Aylesbury and Northampton and was sentenced today at Aylesbury Crown Court. 

Adult victims of non-recent abuse can call the NSPCC Helpline for advice and support on 0808 800 5000.
