Whittlesey: Priest Jailed For Sex Offences

A former teacher and priest who sexually abused three young girls over a decade has been jailed for 17 years.

David Goodstadt, 44, of Broad Street, Whittlesey, was convicted of rape, attempted rape, indecency with a child and five counts of indecent assault following a trial at Peterborough Crown Court last month.

He was cleared of three other charges, while a rape and two indecent assaults were ordered to lie on his file after the jury failed to reach verdicts on those counts.

Detective Constable Amanda Sylvester said: "Goodstadt is a dangerous man and we're pleased he is now behind bars.

"The victims showed great bravery in coming forward and ultimately giving evidence at court in order to bring him to justice.

"His actions have had a huge impact on all three victims and will no doubt continue to do so for many years to come. Only now have they been able to start rebuilding their lives, and the fact the jury believed them is a huge step forward in that process."
