‘Predatory paedophile’ jailed for 14 years for child sexual abuse


AN ELDERLY man described as a ‘predatory paedophile’ has been jailed for 14 years for historic sexual abuse of children.

Michael Malin, 78, of Ampthill Road, Bedford, was found guilty of nine counts of sexual offences committed against children under the age of 16 at Luton Crown Court.

Over a period of five years Malin sexually abused two boys – with the abuse starting when the victims were aged just 11 and 12.

Malin gave the victims money and forced them to carry out sexual acts in return.

Yesterday (Monday) he was sentenced to a total of 14 years and described as a predatory paedophile by the judge. He will also be on the sex offenders register for life.
