Former monk admits Ampleforth and Workington child sex offences


A former parish priest and monk has been jailed for 20 years and 10 months at York Crown Court today (12 February) for the sexual abuse of three boys over 30 years ago.

Peter Turner (80),  formerly known as Father Gregory Carroll, pleaded guilty yesterday to 14 non-recent child sex offences.

One of the victims was a pupil at Ampleforth College boarding school in North Yorkshire, who was aged 10 when he was targeted by Turner. The other victims were aged between 9 and 12 and were abused in Workington, Cumbria, where Turner was serving as a parish priest.

This is the second time he has been jailed for sexual offences against Ampleforth pupils. In 2005 he was sent to prison after committing a range of sexual offences against pupils at the school in the 1970s and 80s.

Pauline McCullagh from the CPS said: “Turner committed a truly sickening breach of trust, sexually abusing young boys who innocently placed their trust in him as a monk and priest.

“He blighted their childhoods in pursuit of his own depraved sexual gratification. His victims have shown tremendous strength and bravery in coming forward and supporting the investigation and prosecution. Thanks to them, the true scale of his criminality is becoming clear.

“Our thoughts remain with them as they have been throughout.”
