Paedophile pub landlord Billy Nutt jailed for sexually assaulting 4-year-old

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Paedophile pub landlord Billy Nutt has been jailed for four years after sexually assaulting a four-year-old boy in his Northfleet flat.

The gay 55-year-old, who once supported Dame Shirley Bassey on tour, was sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court this morning (March 20).

He will be put on the sex offenders’ register indefinitely, and is prohibited from having any contact with a child under 16 without parental permission.

March when the little boy told his mum that Nutt assaulted him. He told the court he’d blown raspberries on the lad’s stomach after lifting his T shirt up. He said the boy wanted to go to the toilet and when he finished Nutt pulled his trousers and pants up.

He told the court: “The T shirt came up and one of his arms came out. I noticed there was a lot of saliva on his belly so I wiped it off with a flannel. I think some saliva would have been transferred when I pulled his pants up.”

Nutt told the court he had taken the boy to his favourite burger bar and then went to the park which was closed. They went back to the flat and the boy watched a Spiderman video.

When police descended on his flat last March he said he was ‘shocked, stunned – full of disbelief.’ Later, traces of his saliva were found on the boy’s underwear. Police found a pornographic gay magazine showing men having oral sex when they raided the flat.

He said the magazine was kept under his bed and he hadn’t looked at it for months. He didn’t know why it was lying open on his bedroom floor.

Pub landlord found guilty of indecently assaulting a four year old boy as they played games at his flat

The landlord of the La Providence Inn, Sandgate, William ‘Billy’ Nutt, 54looked shocked when the verdict was announced today (Friday March 13) at Maidstone Crown Court.

Mr Nutt, a singer and guitarist who once backed Dame Shirley Bassey, quit showbiz to run pubs. He had pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The court heard that Nutt had been friendly with the boy’s family for 35 years and described himself as ‘openly gay.’

He said he would take the boy out for a McDonald’s and a run in the local park or they would play guitar at a flat Nutt owned in Northfleet.

That all changed last March when the little boy told his mum that Nutt assaulted him. He told the court he’d blown raspberries on the lad’s stomach after lifting his T shirt up. He said the boy wanted to go to the toilet and when he finished Nutt pulled his trousers and pants up.

He told the court: “The T shirt came up and one of his arms came out. I noticed there was a lot of saliva on his belly so I wiped it off with a flannel. I think some saliva would have been transferred when I pulled his pants up.”

Nutt told the court he had taken the boy to his favourite burger bar and then went to the park which was closed. They went back to the flat and the boy watched a Spiderman video.

When police descended on his flat last March he said he was ‘shocked, stunned – full of disbelief.’ Later, traces of his saliva were found on the boy’s underwear. Police found a pornographic gay magazine showing men having oral sex when they raided the flat.

He said the magazine was kept under his bed and he hadn’t looked at it for months. He didn’t know why it was lying open on his bedroom floor.

Catherine Farrelly, prosecuting,said: “You are telling the ladies and gentlemen of the jury a pack of lies.”

Nutt replied: “I may be gay but I’m not interested in children in any way.”

He will be sentenced next Friday, March 20.
