A Catholic priest has been charged with multiple child sex offences allegedly committed at a Southern Highlands college more than 30 years ago.
In April 2019, detectives attached to The Hume Police District - working under Strike Force Kesup - investigated allegations of sexual and indecent assaults at a Burradoo boarding institution during the 1980s.
A 78-year-old Kensington man remains before the court charged with nine offences allegedly involving students, who were aged between 12 and 15 at the time.
Following extensive investigations, the man was re-arrested at Southern Highlands Police Station about 11.30am on Tuesday.
He was charged with an additional 18 offences, including four sexual assault offences, 12 indecent assault offences, and two offences of gross indecency committed by a male.
The man was given conditional bail to appear before Moss Vale Local Court on Tuesday, October 8.
Police will allege that between 1982 and 1989, the Catholic priest indecently assaulted 11 children, committing 27 offences in total.
