Extradited Paedophile ex-Priest gets 21 years

posted in: In the News | 0

A former priest who abused boys over a 24-year period has been caged for 21 years, or one year for each guilty conviction.

Richard Robinson, now 73, had emigrated to California during the 1980s and needed to be extradited to face the charges. However the change in tide over Catholic child abuse clearly assisted the investigation. It’s also encouraging to hear that two of the witnesses that disclosed post-extradition and therefore had their cases left on file, still gave evidence in support the four remaining adult victims that came forward when the British investigation was conducted by the police.

The BBC has the information here.
