Bangor pensioner jailed for further three years for abusing boy

A pensioner already serving 15 years in jail for abusing boys was given an additional three years and four months for sex offences against another boy between 2002 and 2004.

Terrence Cadman, aged 67, formerly a builder of Bangor, was said by his barrister Owen Edwards at Caernarfon crown court to be remorseful but expecting to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Judge Niclas Parry was told that Cadman had taken his victim, then aged 15 and 16, on fishing trips and plied him with gifts but threatened him that if he told anyone he would never be seen again.

The judge said it was a shocking case involving the grooming of a vulnerable boy in a two-year period.

Twenty years before he had committed offences against three boys.

Cadman was due for release from the 15-year sentence in August 2022 but now he will have to serve the extra term.

A Sexual Harm Prevention Order bans him from any contact with his victim or unsupervised contact with any child under 18.

Judge Parry said it was estimated the abuse happened between 60 and 80 times. He told the defendant :”This was a shocking case involving the grooming of a vulnerable boy over two years.”

The OAP admitted seven counts of sexual abuse.
