Church of England denies sexual abuse reticence

The Church of England denied covering up child sexual abuse by a former choir master.

Peter Halliday, 61, was sentenced to 2½ years in prison on Thursday after pleading guilty to sexually abusing three boys in his church choir between 1985 and 1990.

Winchester Crown Court Judge Ian Pearson said Halliday had systematically sexually abused boys.

Church of England officials were told of the abuse in 1990, but no legal action was taken against Halliday until one of his victims filed charges last year.
