England: Sect's 'bishop' involved in homosexual activities
Catholic World News - June 15, 2010
Anthony Earl-Williams, the leader of a sect that has been variously characterized as "Old Catholic" and "traditional Catholic," has been involved in prurient activities of a homosexual nature, The Sun reports. The ArchConfraternity of Our Lady of Victories, whose metropolitan bishop is Earl-Williams, claims 40 parishes and missions in the United Kingdom.

The ones you really have to look out for are the young Old Catholic bishops!

The schism you refer to in the second paragraph gave rise to the Union of Utrecht, which is how the term 'Old Catholic' is generally understood. I don't think this outfit is part of it.
