Father McSweeney posed a "high risk of serious harm" to children

Jailing paedophile priest Father Anthony McSweeney at Southwark Crown Court today, the judge said that even though he had not touched the victim himself, he had encouraged it and posed a risk of 'serious harm' to children.

He abused the boy along with his friend John Stingemore, who was found dead weeks before his trial.

I would certainly assess that Father McSweeney poses a high risk of serious harm to children.

Touching of the child was done with his approval and encouragement and for his sexual gratification, and it therefore makes no difference whatever, that he was not the one who in fact touched the child.

– Judge Alistair McCreath
