If you or someone you know is being molested, or you suspect abuse, you must contact the appropriate authorities. If you were abused as a child and suspect that your abuser is still harming others, please report it. Medical, legal, and psychological intervention are likely necessary. Children should never be left in abusive situations. Check with your local department of human services for reporting procedures.

A depraved couple who groomed a young boy for sex and carried out a ‘campaign of rape’ against him, have been jailed for 38 years.

Paedophiles Anthony Woodcock, 41, and David Bellamy, 46, used the youngster as their ‘sexual plaything’ in abuse lasting several years.

The pair, who ran a village pantomime, simultaneously abused the boy at their home in Sherburn-in-Elmet, North Yorkshire, after plying him with tobacco, drink and drugs.

A jury at York Crown Court convicted the couple of 21 sexual offences including 16 of rape.

Their victim, now a man, struggled to hold back tears as he told the court of the effect their crimes had had on him.

The court heard he had nightmares and had been taking anti-depressants since his mid-teens. He also had problems forming relationships.

He said: ‘My childhood memories are all tainted and damaged because of what they did to me.

‘I feel my life has only just started. I am only just discovering what life should be. Their abuse will stay with me forever.’

Judge Andrew Stubbs QC said the couple had carried out a ‘campaign of rape’.

He told the pair: ‘You used him as a sexual plaything for your sexual gratification.

They had groomed the boy for sex and at an early age had given him the tobacco, drink and ‘popper’ drugs they used in their ‘dissolute lifestyle’.

‘There was additional depravity as the two of you used a variety of sexual toys. This sexual abuse and exploitation extended over many years.’

Woodcock denied 10 charges of rape and two of sexual assault and Bellamy denied six of rape, two of sexual assault and one of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

Some of the charges were specimen charges, each covering several different occasions.

The jury convicted the couple, now from Byram, near Selby, on all charges at the end of a six-day trial.

Woodcock was jailed for 20 years and Bellamy for 18. Each will have a year’s extended supervision at the end of their sentence. 

They were both put on the sex offenders’ register for life and will be subject to a sexual harm prevention order restricting their contact with children on their release. 

Both claimed in the witness box they had not behaved inappropriately towards the boy. Neither had any previous convictions.

York Crown Court heard they ran a village pantomime for years and carried out charitable work.

Prosecutor Paul Newcombe said Woodcock began by grooming the boy and progressed to abusing him. After a period he included his partner Bellamy.

Some of the abuse by Woodcock took place in a lay-by. On another occasion, Bellamy abused the boy after getting him to massage him. 

An NSPCC spokesperson said: ‘Woodcock and Bellamy’s horrendous campaign of grooming and abuse will have had a devastating effect on their young victim, who has shown tremendous courage in speaking out.

‘It’s now extremely important that he continues to receive support and we hope these sentences provide him with some degree of comfort.

‘Reporting child sexual abuse is not easy for survivors of this awful crime, so it’s vital they have confidence they will be listened to.

‘The NSPCC is visiting primary schools across North Yorkshire with its ‘Speak Out Stay Safe’ service, empowering children to protect themselves from abuse and highlighting how to speak out if they ever experience it.’ Source

MY MISSION IS NOT TO CONVINCE YOU, ONLY TO INFORM…

It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.

Preach the gospel with BOLDNESS AND STRENGTH! It’s better to follow God and be judged by the world, than to follow the world and be judged by God!
