The ABC reports on another Catholic priest, Edward Evans (84) facing child abuse charges from the not so distant 1990s.

Father Edward Evans, 84, was arrested earlier this year on allegations he indecently assaulted a young girl at his home during the 1990s.

He pleaded not guilty.

But on Thursday in the ACT Magistrates Court, the prosecution announced the investigation was still open and they expected to lay further charges in the coming weeks.
