Perverted dentist, 61, turned up to meet ’14-year-old boy’

A dentist who turned up with a car full of sex toys to meet a ’14-year-old boy’ after telling him he’d ‘teach him a thing or two’, has been spared jail.  

Richard Hayes-Hall, 61, was attempting to meet an underage boy for sex when he was caught in a police sting.   

The ‘boy’ he attempted to meet with condoms, ropes and padlocks in his car was a police officer and Hayes-Hall, who was a lecturer and qualified dentist, was arrested.  

A court heard that when the father-of-two learned of the boy’s age, he wrote in a message: ‘Very nice – only 14. I would be happy to teach you a thing or two XXXX.’

Hayes-Hall, from Malvern in Worcestershire, was arrested in Lickey Hills, Birmingham, on March 14 where he’d arranged to meet the boy.  

Judge Robert Juckes QC said: ‘I have to bear in mind the disgust most members of the public feel about the kind of behaviour you indulged in in this particular case.

‘Between January and March you were in constant contact with someone you thought was an innocent 14-year-old schoolboy, preparing to meet, grooming him for that purpose and in the end arranging the meeting and equipping yourself for the purpose.
