Former priest and known pedophile Oliver O'Grady

Former priest Oliver O’Grady was sentenced in Dublin to three years in prison after thousands of movies, clips and audio bites of graphic child pornography were found on his laptop. O’Grady previously served seven years in prison in America for child abuse.

The 65-year-old defrocked priest served the seven years after he was found guilty of rape, molestation, and lewd and lascivious acts on children during his time as a priest in California.

O’Grady was  the subject of the 2006 Academy Award-nominated documentary Deliver Us From Evil. O'Grady said he wanted the film to serve as the "most honest confession of [his] life." He detailed how he preyed on children, and claims Church officials knew about his abuses but protected him by moving him from parish to parish

The Irish Examiner reports that O’Grady admitted to three counts of possession of child pornography after his laptop, which he had left on a flight from Amsterdam to Dublin in 2010, was found to have 65,000 graphic images of children.

Upon finding the laptop O’Grady had presumably accidentally left behind on the plane, local gardai tracked him down to a hostel in Dublin. There, they found thousands more images and videos which were stored on his laptop, hard drives and USB drives.

Following his seven year imprisonment in the United States for similar charges, O’Grady was laicised from the Church and deported back to Ireland.

The judge who sentenced O’Grady, who used to reside at Charlemont House in Dublin 2, at Dublin’s Circuit Court believed that his imprisonment in the US had not rehabilitated the “socially isolated” O’Grady and that the man has a “serious problem.”
