A former Catholic priest who also worked as a teacher has been charged with historical child sex offences dating back to the 80s and 90s.

It will be alleged the man indecently assaulted three young boys a number of times; firstly a young boy whilst he was employed as a teacher in Campbelltown in the 80s, and then two other boys when he was a Parish Priest in the East Gosford area in the 90s.

Following an extensive investigation by Brisbane Water detectives, yesterday police arrested a 78-year-old man at Coonabarabran.

He was charged with 13 child sex related offences and granted conditional bail to appear before Gosford Local Court on 31 October 2017.

Meanwhile, inquiries by detectives are ongoing and anyone with information is urged to come forward.
