Victims of priest's abuse talk of lives going off rails

London Free Press


SIMCOE -- One victim says he is "broken," while another says he feels immense shame because of the sexual abuse he suffered.

Philippe-Alexandre Lauriault and Trevor Kannawin, both 22, gave victim impact statements during the sentencing hearing of Rev. Konstanty Przybylski.

Przybylski pleaded guilty in February to sexually abusing Lauriault and Kannawin between 1995 and 2000, while he was a priest at St. Cecilia's Roman Catholic Church in Port Dover.

Przybylski has lived in London since 2000. When he was arrested nearly a year ago, he was not assigned to a parish, a spokesperson for the Diocese of London said.
