THE case against a former St Stanislaus’ College priest accused of historic indecent and sexual assaults on students at the school is due to return to court next week.
Charges against Glenn Michael Humphreys were mentioned briefly in Bathurst Local Court on Monday, November 28 when magistrate Michael Allen adjourned the matter until Monday, December 12 for further mention.
Humphreys, 63, was arrested in Western Australia in August following his release from jail serving a two-year sentence there.
Humphreys was immediately subsequently extradited to NSW to face further charges.
The charges against Humphreys relate to offences allegedly committed against students at St Stanislaus’ College in Bathurst between 1975 and 1982.
Humphreys had previously been charged by police in relation to the allegations but was already incarcerated in Western Australia at the time.
Matters against Humphreys were first mentioned in the Bathurst Local Court in November 2015 when magistrate Michael Allen issued a warrant for the former priest’s arrest.
He had been denied parole and was not in Bathurst Local Court when Mr Allen issued the warrant.
The charges currently against Humphreys include seven counts of indecent assault against a male and a further seven charges of sexual assault or indecent act against a person aged 14 to 16 years of age.
Mr Allen continued Humphrey’s bail conditions.
Humphreys is one of 12 people who have been charged by detectives attached to Strike Force Belle since 2008.
The strike force was established to investigate allegations of historic sexual abuse at the boarding school.
