    SYDNEY: A paedophile Catholic priest convicted of 15 sex offences against boys as young as 11 was jailed for 10 and a half years Monday.
    Frank Klep, aged 70, was in charge of a Melbourne school's sick bay in the 1970s and 1980s and abused more than 20 boys who went to the infirmary when they were ill.
    Judge Frank Gucciardo became so upset during the sentencing he had to leave the room to compose himself for a few minutes, the Herald-Sun newspaper reported.
    "Your conduct exemplified the depth of evil hypocrisy," the judge told Klep.
    He will be eligible for parole in six and a half years.
    Klep was stripped of his priesthood in 2005 when he was sentenced to five years jail for other sex crimes against children. In 1994, he was convicted of child sex crimes but not jailed.
    Several other priests who worked at the same school and infirmary have also been convicted of crimes against children. – dpa
