Pedophile Priest Gets Four Year Sentence

From Canada-

A former Anglican priest has been sentenced to four years in prison for the sexual abuse of a young boy.

David Norton, 72, showed no reaction from the prisoner’s box as Superior Court Justice Lynne Leitch delivered the sentence at the London courthouse Friday. Norton pleaded guilty in February to a charge of sexual interference involving the son of one of his parishioners. The abuse began in 1991 when the boy was just 9 years old. It continued until 1995.

In handing down her sentencing decision, Leitch said those who prey on children for their own sexual gratification “must pay a heavy price.” She classified Norton’s actions as “sexually deviant behaviour.”

“Mr. Norton took advantage of a young child to satisfy his own sexual desires,” said Leitch. “There is no question the victim was cheated of his childhood.”
