Pervert priest guilty of attacks.

A PERVERTED priest who rocked the church with his support for paedophilia was yesterday found guilty of sex attacks on young boys.

But Roman Catholic Father Michael Ingram was in intensive care as the jury returned their verdicts, after driving his car into a wall at high speed.

He was rushed to Leicester Royal Infirmary suffering from a broken ankle and two broken knee caps.

Ingram, 68, is now in hospital under police guard until he is fit to face sentencing.

He was found guilty of seven sex offences against six boys, aged nine to 12, when he was priest of Leicester's Holy Cross Priory in the 1970s.

His victims included altar boys and boys from deprived backgrounds referred to him by social services.

Ingram, of Cambridge, claimed his victims' memories were confused.

Twenty years ago, there was uproar when he spoke in praise of paedophile relationships

At his trial, Ingram, who left the priesthood in 1991, claimed to have been misquoted.
