Fr Benito, a former teacher, is still in ministry in the archdiocese.
A brother and sister complained to gardai in 2001 that they were sexually abused by Benito.
He described how one night in 1988 he frightened the brother, then aged 15. Benito calmed him down by hugging him. According to Benito, the teenager suddenly kissed him and became aroused: to defuse the situation he “flicked at his erection in a mocking fashion”.
