Earlier this year, 67-year-old Andrew Cody was jailed for two and a half years for indecently assaulting three students at the same school.
A man who was molested as the Catholic high school says his abuser's guilty plea is a step towards closure for him. The victim, who did not want to be named, says the abuse caused turmoil in his life but he hopes Stevenson's guilty pleas will allow him to move forward.
The Society of Mary says it has been shamed and saddened by Stevenson's actions. Father Philip Cody, a spokesperson for the Society of Mary to which Stevenson belonged, says they apologise to anyone affected by his actions.
Cody says the society acknowledges that what happened was very wrong, and they take such cases seriously.
