Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, personally contacted the Crown Prosecution Service more than 20 years ago to seek assurances over its decision not to pursue charges against a sex abuser bishop, the Old Bailey has heard.

The then leader of the Church of England telephoned a senior prosecutor after being told in 1993 that the Bishop of Gloucester Peter Ball, who had just resigned in disgrace, had been handed a caution for gross indecency rather being charged with indecent assault.

He said he had been “troubled” and feared the case could “reignite” if others came forward but was told the matter was “closed”.

Ball, now 83, has pleaded guilty to abusing of 18 young men, including teenagers, in Litlington, East Sussex, in the 1970s and 1980s, during his time as Bishop of Lewes in Sussex.

In a case expected to have implications for the prosecution of other Anglican clerics facing sexual allegations, the charges included a count of misconduct in a public office because of his position of authority within the Established Church.

That charge said he had misused his position in authority “to manipulate and prevail upon others for his own sexual gratification” in relation to the 16 young men, who were taking part in church-run “Year For Christ” scheme to test a possible calling to the ministry.

“I was worried that if any other allegations of past indecency were made it would reignite. I wanted some reassurance that this would not be the case.”
Lord Carey

Ball changed his plea to guilty and was charged with misconduct in public office and a string of sex offences including two counts of indecent assault involving separate male victims and a misconduct charge relating to 16 others just two weeks before he was due to go on trial.

Two other counts of indecent assault on a boy of 12 or 13 and a 15-year-old youth were denied and will lie on file.

The Bishop of Durham, the Rt Rev Paul Butler, issued an “unreserved” apology to Ball’s victims on behalf of the Church of England.

Sussex Police reopened the case in 2012 prompted by a Church review, despite an earlier decision to let Ball accept a caution.

The former bishop’s lawyers attempted to persuade Mr Justice Sweeney that the case should be dismissed on the grounds that he had been told there would be no future action.

His barrister Richard Smith QC, argued the CPS may have settled on the caution to avoid the publicity of a bishop in the dock after discussion “behind closed doors”.

He drew on a statement from Lord Carey, which was read to the court during legal argument.

It said: “I was troubled – I did not think this was good enough. I wanted some form of assurance.

“All we had was the resignation of Bishop Peter.

“I was worried that if any other allegations of past indecency were made it would reignite. I wanted some reassurance that this would not be the case.

“I was so troubled, that evening after dinner I went to my study.

“I was supplied with a number of a man at the CPS I believed to be a director. I do not recall his name.

“I rang him and asked what might happen if allegations from the past were made.

“I was told quite categorically that the other allegations would not be taken further as far as we are concerned.

“He has resigned. He is out of it. The matter is closed. We are not going to take anything any further.”

Ball, of Langport, Somerset, entered his pleas via video link from Taunton Crown Court. He was bailed ahead of sentencing on October 7.

Detective Chief Inspector Carwyn Hughes of Sussex Police said Ball had “used religion as a cloak behind which to carry out his grooming activity”.

A former Church of England bishop who abused 18 young men over three decades has finally admitted his guilt after a last-ditch effort to throw out his case on the word of a former archbishop of Canterbury failed.

Former bishop of Lewes Peter Ball (83) used religion as a “cloak” to groom his victims when they came to his home in Litlington, East Sussex.

Many were teenagers or in their early 20s when they sought out the bishop – as aspiring priests or with the intention of exploring their spirituality.

Weeks before his trial at the Old Bailey, Ball, who has suffered ill-health but was deemed fit to stand trial, pleaded guilty to misconduct in a public office.

Between 1977 and 1992 he misused his position in authority “to manipulate and prevail upon others for his own sexual gratification” in relation to 16 young men.

He also admitted indecently assaulting two men in their late teens between 1980 and 1983, and between 1990 and 1991.

Indecent assault

Two other counts of indecent assault on a boy of 12 or 13 and a 15-year-old youth were denied and will lie on file.

Earlier this year, Mr Justice Sweeney refused to dismiss the case on a legal technicality after it emerged Ball and former archbishop Lord Carey had been assured in 1993 there would be no future action.

They both believed the matter was closed when Ball accepted a caution for one act of gross indecency and resigned his post, despite police knowing about more complaints.

But in 2012, prompted by a Church of England review, Sussex Police reopened the case and last year charged him with a string of sex offences against teenage boys and young men.

Following his guilty pleas, the church offered an “unreserved apology” to Ball’s victims.

In a statement, Bishop of Durham Rev Paul Butler commended the victims’ “bravery”, saying the church had “provided full co-operation” with the police.

Det Chief Insp Carwyn Hughes of Sussex Police said 12 of the victims had come forward since the investigation was launched.

He said: “It became clear that under the guise of his status as a bishop, Ball had systematically abused the trust of the victims, many of whom were aspiring priests, whilst others were simply seeking to explore their spirituality.

“He abused that trust and used religion, through his Give A Year For Christ scheme, as a cloak behind which to carry out his grooming activity – the principal aim of which was to satisfy his sexual interest in and desire for young men.”

Details of the long history leading to the former clergyman being reinvestigated could only be reported on Tuesday after restrictions were lifted by Mr Justice Wilkie.

On March 5th, 1993, Ball was notified by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) that despite “sufficient admissible, substantial and reliable evidence”, it was prepared to deal with the matter out of court.

Avoid publicity

Ball’s barrister, Richard Smith, suggested the CPS may have settled on the caution to avoid the publicity of a bishop in the dock after discussion “behind closed doors”.

Giving evidence at that hearing, Ball recalled: “After I took the caution I asked very clearly ‘Does this include all other offences of the same nature?’ and I was told very clearly that it did.

“I can remember so clearly I was so glad to get away – to get a guarantee that it was all over.

“That was the last words of the police officer – ‘Bishop, it’s all over’. I was so pleased I went like a rocket down to Cornwall to my brother.”

Lord Carey, who was archbishop of Canterbury at the time, appeared to back up his claim in his recollections of the incident, which were read out in court.

On hearing the news of Ball’s caution, he wrote: “I was troubled. I did not think this was good enough. I wanted some form of assurance.

“All we had was the resignation of Bishop Peter. I was worried that if any other allegations of past indecency were made it would reignite. I wanted some reassurance that this would not be the case.

“I was so troubled, that evening after dinner I went to my study. I was supplied with a number of a man at the CPS I believed to be a director. I do not recall his name.

“I rang him and asked what might happen if allegations from the past were made. I was told quite categorically that the other allegations would not be taken further as far as we are concerned. [Ball] has resigned. [Ball] is out of it. The matter is closed. We are not going to take anything any further.”

The defendant also claimed that a promise to resign from his post was a condition of the police caution, even though he later explored the possibility of being allowed back to work.

Frail appearance

Cambridge-educated Ball, who now lives in Langport, Somerset, appeared frail and falteringly entered his pleas via videolink from Taunton Crown Court.

Mr Justice Wilkie remanded him on bail to await sentencing on October 7th.

Ball was bishop of Lewes between 1977 and 1992 and bishop of Gloucester from 1992 until his resignation the following year.

He was said to have many high-profile friends and acquaintances, including the Prince of Wales.

A bit of legal advice

Just a bit of legal advice for anyone who cares to read! I am a convicted “sex offender”, residing in the United States. I was coerced into taking a plea bargain by my “Public Pretender”, to avoid an alleged “long prison term”; only to find out twelve years later that no evidence existed, and had I had a real attorney, I most likely would have been free. I tell you this not to complain, or moan, but so you can believe what I am about to tell you: It does not happen like on the television shows, some people get letters, requesting an interview, others are arrested without so much as a word in advance, no matter the method you action should remain the same. First and foremost, NEVER, EVER admit, or deny anything. If for any reason any law enforcement officer wants to speak with you, you should immediately contact an attorney. So you are sitting in the police station, and being asked questions. Most of the questions are irrelevant to the actual investigation; the officer will try to get you to relax, by asking round about questions at first. You should be extremely firm, even if you have done nothing wrong, ask for an attorney, and say nothing else. Here is the deal, with sex offenses, their does not have to be Physical evidence to get a jury to convict you, so their only has to be suspicion or an accusation made (as in my case). Anything you say, can and will be used against you; no matter how they have to spin or twist it, so just keep your trap shut. If you can not afford an attorney, a public defender will only be appointed after you are charged formerly, so just keep your mouth shut, it will not hurt you to say nothing, while it can ruin you to even confirm your whereabouts. If you are formerly charged, find every reason you can to fire your Public Defender. After you have fired at least three Public Defenders, most States will assign you a real attorney. Now, let’s talk some preventive measures: First and foremost, never ever give up your right to privacy. Always demand a search warrant for your vehicle, home or personal possessions. Always use caution when meeting new people. Scout out potential lawyers in advance, and keep up to date with who specializes in our field. On a final note (I forgot to mention) I committed my “offense” when I was sixteen years old; I was not formally charged until I was twenty! Every state has a “statute of limitations” limiting the amount of time that can pass before you can no longer be charged for an alleged “crime”. Be sure to find out what your state limits are.
