Disgraced priest blamed for youth's suicide


The Criminal Court in Hobart has heard a Tasmanian woman blames a disgraced former Anglican priest for the suicide of her son.

Louis Victor Daniels today admitted to molesting the woman's son in the 1980s.

Daniels admitted to molesting 10 teenaged boys over a 20-year period.

In court today, he pleaded guilty to 13 charges including maintaining a sexual relationship with a young person, indecent assault and attempted indecent assault.

The prosecution told the court Daniels had told one youth he would try training him to be a good kisser.
