More charges have been laid against a Catholic priest, accused of sexually assaulting young boys in the Newcastle area between 1980 and 1991.

The 47-year-old man from Raymond Terrace was arrested last Thursday as part of Strike Force Georgiana, which is investigating individuals over the sexual assault of young boys in the Newcastle area in the 1970s, 80s and 90s.

He was charged with six offences and now faces 19 charges, which allegedly took place at Maitland, Muswellbrook, Cessnock and Windale.

He was released on conditional bail and will appear in Newcastle Local Court on Wednesday.
