Allegations of sexual abuse by a priest in Gateshead
Rev John Anthony Clohosey of Gateshead has been accused of raping a woman in Gateshead in 1986. He will face this allegation at a trial at Newcastle Crown Court in May 2021. Clohosey was a priest at Our Lady Immaculate and St Cuthbert’s RC Church in Crook, County Durham, until he was suspended in 2019. At the time parishioners were not informed of the reason behind his suspension.
