Accused Pedophile Could Die Before Facing Court


Lawyers for a former Canberra Marist Brother accused of historical sexual abuse have applied for a permanent stay of the prosecution.

85-year-old John Chute was due to stand trial in the ACT Supreme Court, charged with 16 sex offences between 1976 and 1986.
