Sneyd Green man, 54, jailed for sexually abusing boys

Pervert Andrew Bullock has been jailed after he sexually abused two schoolboys.

The 54-year-old groomed his victims and gave them alcohol or drugs before indecently assaulting them.

Now Bullock has been jailed for six years and seven months at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court.

Thomas Schofield, prosecuting, said the offending was aggravated by the use of intoxicants and the age difference between the defendant and his victims.

Bullock, of Norton Drive, Sneyd Green, pleaded guilty to four offences of indecent assault on a child and one charge of attempted indecent assault on a child on the fifth day of his trial – after one of the victims had been cross-examined.

Judge David Fletcher told Bullock he will be on the sex offenders’ register for the rest of his life.

He said: “You became aware your first victim was being used by a group of males. He was the young boy who would make the tea and do the errands. His life was spiralling out of control at the time.

“You knew he was exactly that sort of boy. He was bobbing school most of the time and spending his life with a group of men who were using him.

“There was a series of sexual assaults on him over a short period of time. It was exacerbated by giving him substances that would enable him to be more compliant.

“The first victim has been seriously affected. He has been living in the shadow of what happened to him.

“The second victim has been affected ever since. I have read a victim statement he has prepared, telling me of the effects the incident has had on him for the rest of his life.

“Your assessment that you had no interest in young children is delusional. That is clearly not the case or you would not have committed these offences.”
