Pervert sentenced for sexual offences against schoolboy

A pervert has been jailed after he was found guilty by a jury after he carried out a string of sexual abuse offences against a 14-year-old schoolboy

Robert Bradley, 46 of Stockport, appeared at Manchester Crown Court where he was sentenced for four counts of sexual abuse on a child aged under 16

The court was told that the offences took place in 2000, when the victim was aged 14 and Bradley was aged 29.

The victim first reported the abuse to police in 2004, but no further action was taken. It was not until 2016, when charges were finally brought against Bradley

During the trial, the jury heard that the boy had attempted suicide several times as a direct result of being abused.  

Bradley was sentenced to two years and nine months and was told that he must register as a sex offender for life
