A FORMER Holy Cross parish priest has been convicted of abusing a vulnerable boy at a care home.
Father Tony McSweeney, 68, attacked the teen at the home in Hounslow between 1979 and 1981.
He was parish priest of the Holy Cross and St Luke’s parish between 1993 and 1997.
He was found guilty by a jury at Southwark Crown Court of one count of indecent assault and three charges of making indecent photographs of children.
But he was cleared of three counts of indecent assault and one of taking an indecent photograph of a child.
He was released on bail for reports to be prepared ahead of sentencing next month.
