Former Dean of Newcastle granted strict parole

Disgraced former Dean of Newcastle and convicted sex offender Graeme Lawrence, will be banned from entering any Anglican church grounds, when he’s released on parole next week.

The Anglican Diocese of Newcastle today confirmed the 82-year-old is also prohibited from taking part in activites or events, associated with the church.

As NBN News revealed yesterday, Lawrence has been granted strict parole, after serving four and a half years in jail for raping a teenage boy in 1991.
