A student priest who raped his dying friend's 12-year-old son has been jailed for a decade.

Paul Pavlou, 59, was studying to become a priest in 2003 when he offered 'respite' to the family of his friend, who had terminal cancer.

But Pavlou used the opportunity to gratify his 'lascivious and depraved desires' and raped his friend's 12-year-old son on three occasions.
