70-Year-Old Catholic Priest, John Reid, Arrested After Spending Parish's £50,000 On His Housekeeper Lover

A 70-year-old Catholic Priest John Reid who was arrested for spending his Parish's £50,000 on his housekeeper, who he lavished with gifts after falling in love with her, has been handed an 18-months jail sentence.

Before sentencing him, Judge Christopher Prince called Father John Reid’s fraud an ''aberration'' that went on for 40 months. Father Reid, 70, now living in Stockton-on-Tees, got an 18-month suspended jail term after admitting fraud. He will repay the £50,000.

It was gathered that the Priest, who was expected to live a celibate life at St. Cuthbert Church, Chester-le-Street, Co Durham, fell for Gillian Leddy and used his church cash on wine and travel for himself, her and her daughters.
