Padophile ex-priest on trial for sexual abuse

An ex-priest with a serious criminal record will stand trial for sexual abuse at the deggendorf regional court in mid-december. According to the indictment, the 53-year-old has sexually abused five boys on at least 100 occasions since the mid-1990s and tried to rape an 18-year-old girl. A number of the assaults committed in poland, italy, austria and switzerland, as well as near mainz and in the district of deggendorf, are considered serious sexual abuse.

The authorities also accuse the man of forging documents, fraud and misuse of titles, among other things. He is alleged to have obtained at least 100,000 euros to finance his livelihood. According to the court, the former catholic priest had in the meantime also served a prison sentence of several years for sexual abuse.

According to the indictment, the man obtained a priestly ordination in poland by means of falsified school and university degrees. After his dismissal from the priesthood in 2013, he continued to pose as a catholic priest under a false name, holding services and collecting donations. In one case, he had even pretended to be god in an e-mail in order to dissuade a host from making a payment for room and board.

The public prosecutor's office assumes that the defendant is a padophile and that further sexual offences can be expected from him. He was a general danger. Therefore, a decision will have to be made about a permanent placement in a psychiatric hospital.

The 53-year-old was arrested in the district of deggendorf in september 2016 and is now in a psychiatric clinic. There are initially 15 days of hearings scheduled.
