An Australian brother from the St John of God Order convicted of sexual abuse in New Zealand is expected to be deported to Australia next year.
Rodger William Moloney, who went to New Zealand in the 1970s to establish a school for boys in Christchurch, has been released from prison after serving 13 months of a 33-month sentence. He will now serve a year on parole in New Zealand, before being deported here, The Australian reported.
The order of St John of God in Sydney will provide a home for him. Spokesman for the order, Simon Feely, said Moloney, 74, would be retired and would have "no choice" as to the restrictions placed on him.
Moloney was head of Christchurch's Marylands School for boys with learning difficulties. In 2008, he was found guilty of seven charges of sex abuse against boys and jailed. The brothers have previously apologised for Moloney's actions.
He was released on parole in September 2009. He will be deported to Australia when his parole expires in April 2011, AAP reported, quoting a New Zealand Herald report.
