Priest found guilty in Tasmania


A 72-year-old former priest has been found guilty of sexual abuse in a Launceston court.

ABC news reports Roger Michael Bellemore, who was a priest and teacher at Burnie's Marist College, abused three boys who were students in the 1960s and 70s.

The jury considered its verdict for two-and-a-half hours before finding Bellemore guilty of three counts of maintaining a sexual relationship with a young person under the age of 17.
