Christian Brothers to be sentenced for abuse at Catholic school
John Farrell, 73, and Paul Kelly, 63, were convicted of historical sexual and physical abuse.
Two Christian Brothers who abused boys at a Catholic school between 1978 and 1983 are to be sentenced on Friday.
John Farrell, 73, and 63-year-old Paul Kelly were accused of a catalogue of sexual and physical abuse against several pupils at St Ninian’s School in Falkland, Fife.
Last month at the High Court in Glasgow, the pair were found guilty by a jury after a 15-week trial.
Farrell, from Motherwell, North Lanarkshire, was found guilty of three counts of indecent assault and a charge of assaulting a boy with a belt.
Kelly, from Plymouth, Devon, was convicted of four counts of indecent assault and three assault charges, including hitting a boy’s head off sinks at the school.
Their victims were aged between 11 and 15 at the time of the abuse.
They had been standing trial accused of 51 counts of physical and sexual abuse at the school over a six-year period.
Farrell and Kelly are due to be sentenced at the High Court in Glasgow on Friday.
