Priest fails to stop sex offences trial

One in Four

A priest has lost a High Court bid to stop his trial on four charges of indecently assaulting a woman when she was in her early 20s.

The assaults allegedly occurred in the early 1980s and include alleged assaults at a church where the young woman's mother was a sacristan. A formal complaint of assault was first made in May 2002.
