Teacher sentenced for series of sexual offences

A 57-year-old man has today, Tuesday 22 August 2017, been sentenced in connection with a number of child sex offences.

Glyn Barrington Jones, formerly of Major Mitchell Drive, Brisbane, Australia, was charged in January 2016 by officers from Norfolk Constabulary’s Children Abuse Investigation Unit, with 13 offences including 11 counts of indecent assault and two of attempted indecent assault.

Jones pleaded guilty yesterday (Monday 21 August 2017) to seven of the indecent assaults. The other offences will remain on file.

The assaults started while he was a trainee and also took place while he was in post as a Physical Education teacher in Norfolk and Devon.  The offences he was convicted of relate to six female victims  and were committed between 1979 and 1996.  All the victims were aged 16 or under at the time.

When sentencing Jones to five years in prison, Judge Anthony Bate described his offences as having “an enduring impact” on the victims with Jones continuing to lead an “outwardly respectable life as a man of apparent good character” while in fact being a “clandestine sex offender since age of 19.”

Following today’s Norwich Crown Court appearance, Detective Constable Kim Taylor who headed the investigation, said: “Jones took complete advantage of his position of trust to encourage his victims to allow him to carry out sex offences having persuaded them that he was in an emotional relationship with them.

“I want to thank all the victims involved in this investigation for their bravery and patience while this case came to court.  Although by pleading guilty, he has prevented the victims from having to relive their ordeal through a trial, they should not have been in this position in the first place.

“This enquiry highlights how important we consider all allegations of abuse , non recent or current and should assure other victims of abuse that every report is fully investigated by Norfolk Constabulary, with specialist officers guiding victims through the process.”

Jones was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

Father jailed for luring teen over Internet

Posted Fri Nov 26, 2004 5:13pm AEDT

A Brisbane judge has told a court the fact a 37-year-old Melbourne man could procure a child for sex through the Internet is every parent’s nightmare.

David Padgham met the 15-year-old girl in a chatroom in late 2003.

He established a friendship, which included allowing his two children to chat with her online.

Earlier this year he met the Logan teenager in Brisbane where they engaged in consensual sex.

Padgham was arrested after the girl’s mother grew suspicious.

Today he pleaded guilty to one count of procuring a child through the Internet for sex, two charges of indecent dealing and another of carnal knowledge.

Judge Julie Dick described Internet relationships like Padgham’s as “every parent’s nightmare.”

He was sentenced to 15 months in prison, suspended after four months.
