A retired Brighton vicar has been found guilty at the Old Bailey today (Tuesday 27 October) of sexually abusing boys and young men.
Vickery House, the former vicar of St Bartholomew’s Church, in Brighton, denied charges of abusing the men and boys ranging in age from 15 to 34 over a 16-year period.
Some of the offences took place at the Sussex home of the disgraced former Bishop of Lewes Peter Ball. And they involved young men who were also abused by Ball.
House, 69, of Brighton Road, Handcross, was convicted of five charges of indecent assault in total after a 12-day trial. They involved a 15-year-old boy and three young men.
