Defrocked Catholic priest Paul Ryan, 70, was imprisoned on Monday after admitting he had abused three teenage boys in the 1980s and 1990s.

& # 39; There was no cure or medication that reduced the pain. No plaster to cover the wound, no quick fix, no cure, & a victim said in a statement.

He was 17 when he woke up when Ryan bothered him at the retreat in 1985. The victim struggled but was detained and afterwards told by the priest & # 39; you enjoyed it & # 39 ;.

& # 39; You do not survive sexual abuse, & # 39; said the victim.

Another victim was 15 when he was molested during his training as an altar boy at Warrnambool. He was petrified & # 39; during the attack and never returned to training.

The third victim played & # 39; strip poker & # 39; with the priest as a 14-year-old in Ararat where Ryan touched his genitals, showed him pornography, and rubbed his body against the teenager.

The victim is still ashamed of what happened to him, the court was told.

& # 39; The facts in this case are very serious and alarming, & # 39; said District Law Judge Susan Pullen while she imprisoned Ryan.

There was care for each of the violations, and when priest Ryan held a position of trust among his victims, the court noted.

& # 39; Your insult is quite unacceptable, (it was) just to satisfy your own sexual desires, & # 39; Judge Pullen said.

Ryan pleaded guilty to one accusation of indecent abuse, one of sexual penetration of a person between the ages of 16 and 18 and one accusation of indecent act with a child under 16.

He was sentenced to two years and two months in prison and is only eligible for conditional release after serving at least 17 months in prison
