Paedophile priest sexually abused up to 1,000 children

One of Australia’s most notorious paedophile priests has pleaded guilty to abusing a further 11 victims during his time in Ballarat.

Gerald Ridsdale – already convicted of abusing 53 children – appeared via video link at the Melbourne magistrates court on Thursday and pleaded guilty to a number of child abuse charges. “I plead guilty to all charges as presented,” the 82-year-old said.
Ridsdale will face a two-day plea hearing starting on 15 August before being sentenced. The latest charges relate to 10 boys and one girl in Ballarat and the surrounding area between 1961 and the 1980s.
The former Victorian priest spent three months in prison after his first convictions in 1993 and has been in jail since 1994, serving an effective total sentence of 28 years.
His convictions date back to when he was ordained in 1961, although his offending began while he was studying in the seminary.
He abused the children, mainly boys and many altar boys, in the sacristy, presbytery and confessional, in his car, when he took the children away after gaining their parents’ trust. He took a boy and girl away from their father’s grave site after presiding over the funeral so he could abuse them.
His true number of victims is in the hundreds, according to a spokesman for the victims’ advocacy group Broken Rites, Dr Wayne Chamley.
“The original police investigation – it was estimated that he might have actually sexually abused up to 1,000 children during his 30 to 40 years of crime.”

Ridsdale cannot remember the names of all the children he abused in parishes across western Victoria, as well as in New South Wales.
“It was morally wrong and it was legally wrong,” he told the child abuse royal commission in 2015. “Yes, they were serious sins. I’d be fearful all the time of someone reporting me.”
Ridsdale told the commission someone like him should never have been a priest. He also said he should have been stopped by the church, which moved him between parishes and sent him for counselling. He was laicised after his first convictions in 1993, after serving three months in jail.
He told the commission he was sorry the first bishop he had discussed offending with had not gone to the police: “It would have saved so many others.”
