CSA Case: Hunmanby Man Glen Reece MILLER Jailed for 10 Years
A Hunmanby man has been jailed for 10 years for child sex abuse offences spanning a 35 year period.
Glen Reece Miller, 55, was sentenced at Leeds Crown Court on Friday 1 December 2017 following a week-long trial.
The three victims were aged under 13 at the time of the offences, the most recent being a boy from the Scarborough area in September 2014 and two boys from the Wakefield area of West Yorkshire who were subjected to abuse between 1981 and 1985.
Miller denied all 13 offences, which included:
- two counts of indecency with a child
- four counts of indecent assault
- causing a child to watch sexual activity (pornography)
- sexual assault of a child aged under 13
- inciting a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity
- Four counts of making multiple indecent images of a child, ranging from the most severe category A to category B and C images
In sentencing Miller, the judge took into account similar convicted offences against another five boys aged under 13 which occurred at Maidstone, Kent in 1990 and at Walworth, south east London, in 1993.
Miller is now subject to a life-long sexual harm prevention order to prevent him from committing these types of offences in the future.
Detective Constable Sarah Walkey, of the Scarborough Serious Crime Team, said:
“Miller’s abuse spans 35 years and the long prison sentence reflects his history of offending and the sheer gravity of his sickening crimes.
I am satisfied that justice has been served for the victims in this case, and I have nothing but praise for their bravery in coming forward and providing the evidence needed to secure his conviction.”
DC Walkey added:
“I hope the outcome of this case will give other victims of such abhorrent crimes the confidence to report it to the police and seek the professional support that is readily available. It is never too late to report this type of crime.
Anyone who is a victim of crime should not hesitate to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 or dial 999 if an emergency response is required.”
