Vicar faces jail after decades of cover-up

"A paedophile vicar is finally facing jail decades after his sexual abuse was covered up by a perverted Church of England bishop who was friends with Prince Charles."

"Vickery House, 69, was yesterday found guilty of a string of sex attacks against four victims in the 1970s and 1980s while he was working as a curate and vicar in Devon and Sussex."

"His crimes were hushed up by sex abuser Bishop Peter Ball, 83, who avoided justice until this year after receiving support from establishment figures including the Royal Family and MPs."

"Ball wrote a letter of apology to a teenager who complained of being groped by House and assured him it was being ‘looked into’ and ‘would never happen again’."

"The boy did not contact police until 2012, when he told how Ball had hidden the allegation against House."

"House was found guilty of five counts of indecent assault at the Old Bailey yesterday. He was acquitted of a further three counts of indecent assault."

"Judge Christine Henson QC freed him on bail, but warned him that prison is ‘inevitable’ when he is sentenced tomorrow."

"Some of the victims were also groomed in the 1970s and 1980s by Ball, who was handed a 32-month jail sentence earlier this month for 15 years of abuse against novice monks."

"The court heard how the pair targeted young men seeking spiritual instruction on the Bishop’s ‘Give a Year for Christ’ scheme."
