Naval cadet instructor from Milton Keynes
jailed for child sex abuse

A naval cadet instructor who featured in this week’s episode of 24 Hours In Police Custody has been jailed for four and a half years for child sex abuse.

Alex Johnston, 30, of Ennerdale Close, Bletchley was sentenced at Luton Crown Court yesterday (Tuesday) after pleading guilty to five counts of engaging with sexual activity with a girl aged between 13 and 15.

Johnston started grooming two of his cadets in 2013. He sent them messages and built up a relationship with them before engaging in sexual activity with them. He paid one of his victims £50 a month to stop her from telling people about the abuse, however, the victim contacted police in 2015 after doing a child safeguarding course and realised that Johnston had been taking advantage of her and abusing his position of trust.

Detective Inspector Richard Tilling, from the Bedfordshire Police Child and Vulnerable Adult Abuse unit, said: “Johnston abused his position of trust to take advantage of two young girls, grooming them and engaging in sexual activity with them despite knowing they were under the age of consent.

“We will not tolerate child sexual abuse of any kind. I hope that this sentence gives Johnston chance to reflect on his actions while serving as a warning to people who think they can get away with this type of behaviour.

I’d like to praise the bravery of both the victims in speaking out and hope that this allows them to begin to move on with their lives.”

The case involving Johnston featured in the 24 Hours In Police Custody episode ‘Their Time Will Come’ on Monday (12 June).

Anyone who wishes to report child sexual abuse can do so by calling police on 101.

The charges are indecent assaults on females under the age of 14 years between 1957 - 1981.

He has been bailed to appear at Lincoln Magistrates' Court on July 27.

Roy Griffiths, 81, from Dorset, was charged earlier this year.

He faces six counts of indecent assault on a boy under the age of 14 and two counts of inciting a boy under the age of 14 to commit an act of gross indecency.

He appeared at Lincoln Magistrates' Court on June 8 and is to attend Lincoln Crown Court on July 6.

Koran teacher guilty of Cardiff mosque sex abuse
From BBC South East Wales

Being abused by paedophile Koran teacher Mohammed Haji Sadiq
'felt normal eventually', says victim

An 81-year-old former Koran teacher has been convicted of a string of child sex offences.

Mohammed Haji Sadiq taught for 30 years at the Madina mosque in Cardiff.

Sadiq, from Cyncoed, was found guilty of 14 child sex offences but cleared of one count of indecent assault at Cardiff Crown Court.

He had denied the charges involving four girls aged between five and 11 and blamed "politics" in the mosque for the accusations.

The offences took place between 1996 and 2006 at the Woodville Road mosque.

The court heard Sadiq "took advantage of his position" and touched the four girls inappropriately as a form of punishment, abusing the girls if they made a mistake while reciting the Koran.

Some of his victims said they were afraid to attend the mosque because of his abuse.

Mohammed Haji Sadiq denied committing 15 child sex offences over a 10-year period.

Jurors were also told Sadiq would use a stick as a form of punishment in class and hit people over the hand or hard on the back.

One victim said he would threaten young pupils.

His Honour Judge Stephen Hopkins QC said Sadiq was found guilty "on the most compelling evidence".

He said the case clearly passed the custody threshold and that Sadiq would be monitored electronically.

Sadiq, who has had no involvement in the mosque since 2006 when it burnt down, was released on bail and will be sentenced at a later date.

Carlisle man 'faces life' for child sex abuse

A paedophile convicted of sexually assaulting a child has been told he could be jailed for life.

David Stevenson was found guilty following a trial at Carlisle Crown Court of three counts of sexually assaulting a child.

He also breached a sexual offences prevention order he was handed in 2006 for raping and indecently assaulting a teenage girl.

The 53-year-old of Compton Street, Carlisle, will be sentenced on 21 July.

Judge Peter Davies said in view of his previous rape conviction Stevenson faced a life prison sentence unless there were deemed to be "exceptional circumstances".
