Pease Pottage priest accused of sex offences


A Roman Catholic priest sexually abused vulnerable boys along with the manager of a care home, a court heard.

Father Anthony McSweeney, 68, of Old Brighton Road North, Pease Pottage, is on trial at Southwark Crown Court for alleged historic sexual abuse at a London children’s home.

Former care home manager John Stingemore, 72, was found dead at his home in Stonehouse Drive, St Leonards last month. McSweeney denies four counts of indecent assault, three of making indecent images of a child and one of taking indecent images of a child. The trial continues.
