Are the sacraments of Catholic priests-turned Episcopal illicit, but valid?

Near by there are 2 Episcopal (Anglican) parishes with x-Catholic priests who are now Episcopal priests. Are the sacraments they confect illicit but valid or totally invalid?

Dear type,

Yes, they are valid, but illicit. It would be gravely sinful, by the way, for a Catholic to recieve such sacraments from a priest who is in schism with the vicar of Christ. (See the answer to the SSPX question below.)
