Michael Feben, of Medina Avenue, Newport, pleaded guilty to six offences relating to three boys, aged between 11 and 13 years old.
Feben was a priest and aged in his twenties at the time of these offences and continued to offend for decades. This was a gross breach of his position of trust, as he took advantage of young boys who attended his parish.
