Far from being a celibate priest whose actions in kissing a 17-year-old may have been put down to sexual frustration, Finnegan was enjoying an active sex life with his wife, the jury heard. Read more:

Court cases against Catholic priests are nowadays so frequent that the media only then still report about them when there is something else newsworthy and interesting getting revealed in the process, like the priest not only being a Catholic priest but also being a, secretly, married man.

Here some news from today:

 

A Roman Catholic priest accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl has been secretly married for 13 years, a stunned British court heard.

William Finnegan, 59, broke his vows by marrying one of his parishioners in a civil ceremony abroad and then continued to do his job.

Far from being a celibate priest whose actions in kissing a 17-year-old may have been put down to sexual frustration, Finnegan was enjoying an active sex life with his wife, the jury heard.

Finnegan was parish priest at St Clare’s Roman Catholic Church in Fagley, Bradford, when the alleged assault happened on Easter Sunday last year.

He denies sexually assaulting the teenager by touching her bottom and forcefully kissing her.

Richard Walters, prosecuting, said: "He regularly asked her for hugs and on occasions he called her his surrogate daughter."

Jurors heard that as well as touching and kissing her inappropriately, Finnegan told the girl she was "amazing and beautiful".

The girl told her mother who reported Finnegan.
