Former Anglican priest sentenced to four years jail time

Diocese of Huron – Media Release. London, Ontario, August 24, 2018

On Friday, August 24, Mr. David Norton was sentenced to four years in jail after pleading guilty to sexual interference against a child which took place during the time when he was a priest in the Diocese of Huron.

The Huron family feels deeply disappointed and betrayed by Mr. Norton’s actions. We are hopeful that the end of this trial will mark the beginning of a healing process for those who have been hurt. The Diocese of Huron is holding them in prayer and continue to pray for healing.

Mr. Norton relinquished his exercise of ministry as an Anglican priest on May 2, 2016.
