Church worker jailed for sex abuse on young boys
A church worker has been jailed for sexually abusing young boys.
Stuart Helm, 29, wept in the dock as he was handed a three-year sentence by a judge sitting at Leeds Crown Court.
Jailing Helm, Judge Guy Kearl, QC, said: “All your victims were vulnerable, some more vulnerable than others, and the sentence must be of immediate imprisonment.”
The court was told how after his arrest police found evidence that Helm had also been in contact with underage boys in America and had tried to get them to engage in sexual activity via a webcam.
Helm, of Church Mount, Horsforth, pleaded guilty to:
two offences of sexual assault on a child under 13
two of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity
three of sexual activity with a child
three of causing a child to engage in sexual activity
three of attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity.
