Catholic Priest Convicted

Ireland: A Catholic priest convicted of sexually abusing three young sisters has been jailed for four years.

Father Eugene Lewis, 76, was found guilty of 11 charges of assault between 1963 and 1973. The sisters said the abuse began when they were as young as seven. He had denied the charges. In May, a jury in Omagh unanimously convicted Lewis, who lived in Dublin before his six-week trial.

In a statement issued through his solicitor outside court in Belfast on Thursday, the priest maintained his innocence and claimed his conviction was a "miscarriage of justice".
