Former priest Jonathan Graves charged with sex attack on boy

A former Church of England priest has been charged with abusing a boy more than 25 years ago.

Jonathan Graves, 57, of Jervis Avenue, Eastbourne, is accused of indecent assault against a boy aged 11 to 13 between 1987 and 1990.

He was also charged with child cruelty against the same boy and indecent assault against two women, one between 1994 and 1995 and the other in 2002.

He has been bailed to appear before Hastings Magistrates' Court on 13 May.

Sussex Police said there was nothing to suggest that any young people were currently at risk.
