School caretaker jailed for sex crimes against young girls
A school caretaker who grabbed a girl’s bottom and asked her for a hug has been convicted of sexual offences.
Bryan Pauly, from Hospital Lane, Boston, was arrested after a teenage girl complained that he had asked to enter the toilet cubicle that she was in.
The same girl also reported that Pauly asked her if she had a boyfriend, put his arm around her and asked for a kiss her, which she refused.
After this report the police then traced two other victims.
These further incidents did not occur at the Boston school where Pauly had been employed through an agency as a caretaker.
The court heard one young girl complained that Pauly had grabbed her bottom after asking her for a hug.
Another young girl reported that Pauly had touched her over clothing, tried to kiss her and licked her in an intimate area.
When Pauly, who is a father-of-two, was interviewed by police he admitted much of his offending.
He pleaded guilty to four charges of sexual assault on a child under 13, one charge of sexual activity with a child, and one charge of attempting to incite a child under 16.
Pauly was jailed for three years, was also ordered to register as a sex offender for life and made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order.
Passing sentence Judge Simon Hirst told Pauly there had been some abuse of trust in his offending.
The 44-year-old appeared in Lincoln Crown Court, today, August 4.
