FATHER CHRISTOPHER HEENAN is charged with sexually assaulting a 17 year old boy in 2019.
They were attending a James Bond Theme party.
The priest said that he had too much to drink, found te 17 year old attractive, and started flirting with him.
The boy said he put hus hand on his inner thigh.
The priest told the police he was looking for another Jon as he had been struggling for a number of years.
Fr Heenan has got himself into serious trouble.
People who knew him say he was / is a nice man and always good to people.
Even his victim said:
“I wouldn’t say he was a bad man, but his actions resembled those of a bad man.”
But Fr Heenan touched the young man without his permission and in a sexually intrusive way.
The fact that the priest had alcohol taken may be a partial explanation, but it is certainly no excuse.
It’s obvious from what the priest said that he has been having personal and sexual problems for some.
Many priests are sexually immature and have never grown up sexually and emotionally.
You can detect this from their conservations when they are in a group. The talk is like what you would get from 14 year old boys in a boarding school.
Mature people should always observe boundaries.
