Lawpoint is currently investigating Brother Kevin Hopson also known as Brother “Crispin” who was a former member of the Marist Brothers.

Brother Crispin Hopson taught at numerous Marist Brothers schools in NSW and the ACT including as Superior and Principal. He taught/served at the following schools (approximate dates):

  • 1964+: Marist Primary Lidcombe (Superior and Principal)
  • 1968+: Marist College Canberra (Superior, Bursar, Foundation Principal)
  • 1974+: Sacred Heart Primary, Mosman (Assistant Superior, Deputy Principal, Superior and Principal)

  • 1995: Marist Brothers North Sydney (Superior, Bursar)

The Royal Commission heard evidence of allegations that when he was Superior of Scared Heart Mosman, Brother Hopson (and the Marist Brothers more broadly) protected a well known child abuser, Brother Gregory Sutton. Brother Sutton was subsequently convicted of numerous child abuse offences.

Numerous former students have now made allegations that Brother Crispin Hopson was himself abusing children whilst he was at Sacred Heart Mosman.

We are currently representing a client who has made allegations that he was sexually abused by Brother Crispin Hopson while our client was at Sacred Heart Primary School Mosman.
