A Monk who was convicted of sexually assaulting a "vulnerable" woman in an Aberdeen chaplaincy is to be sentenced later this month. Father Mark Paterson, a Carmelite friar, was found guilty in January after a lengthy trial at the city's sheriff court and has been placed on the sex offenders register. The assault happened while Paterson was a chaplain at Aberdeen University. Paterson, 47, was found guilty of indecently assaulting the woman in the Aberdeen University chaplaincy over a period of almost two years.
