A FORMER Anglican priest has been found guilty of sexually abusing five boys over a 30-year period in Western Australia's south.
Raymond Sydney Cheek, 84, had been on trial in the WA District Court charged with committing an act of gross indecency and two counts each of indecent assault and indecent dealings with a child between 1955 and 1985.
The jury returned its verdict on Monday after deliberating for almost one day.
Cheek will face a sentencing hearing in February and was granted bail in the meantime with strict conditions, including that he not reapply for a passport and must stay away from airports, and must not have any contact with children or his victims.
