The 50-year-old former priest, who worked at a school near the city of Kassel, said he had sexually abused six altar boys between 1992 and 2003. Investigators also found pornographic images of children on his computer.

The man, a trained educator, had filmed many of his assaults. He repeatedly applied the same scheme, feigning a medical or scientific examination to approach the children. The priest was suspended from his duties in May, when initial suspicions arose. He has been held in custody since June. His defence lawyer said the priest had managed to end his abusive behaviour in 2003.
What is happening to these clergy? How long these be taken as the representatives of God? Afterall their deeds compel us to think otherwise!
