Paedophile in his 80s jailed for repeatedly abusing child


An 83 year-old paedophile from Kent has been jailed for subjecting a ”vulnerable child” to multiple sexual assaults  between 2011 and 2015.

Appearing at court Raymond Gray from Glendale in Swanley pleaded guilty to seven counts of sexual activity with a child. On 6 October was he sentenced to 6 years and 7 months imprisonment. He will also be placed on the sex offenders register indefinitely.

Gray had subjected his victim to multiple acts of abuse during a four year period. The child had also been given pornographic magazines and warned not to tell anyone about his actions.

During police interview Gray refused to comment to a number of questions but conceded to officers he was ashamed of himself, because he ‘shouldn’t have done it’.
