A 62-YEAR-OLD man sent to prison for sexual activity with a teenage boy was also jailed 23 years ago for sex crimes against a girl.
James Greenhill has been jailed for two years after pleading guilty to two counts of indecency with the boy in early 2000.
Prosecutor David Outterside told Derby Crown Court: “The victim said the behaviour made him feel terrible.
“He didn’t believe it to be wrong at the time – only later in life he realised it was.”
The court heard that the victim, who said he had also been abused by others, did not report the abuse by Greenhill, of Wensleydale Walk, Alvaston, until last year.
Mr Outterside said of the victim: “He said this behaviour affected his life considerably – his education, his childhood.
“He feels bitter about it.
“It’s even affected his health.”
Clive Stockwell, for Greenhill, said the defendant had admitted his “wrongdoing” to police.
Mr Stockwell said: “Whether it occurred on a mutual basis or not, he was the adult.
“The defendant candidly accepts this is conduct that deserves a custodial term.”
The court heard Greenhill was jailed for nine months in 1989 for two charges of indecent assault on a teenage girl.
Mr Stockwell said: “In the meantime, he hasn’t got himself into trouble.”
Judge Ebraham Mooncey told Greenhill that, when he was released from prison, he must obey a sexual offences prevention order, which included not living in the same house as anyone under 18, unless permission had been given by social services.
Judge Mooncey said: “The offences happened when you were younger but justice has caught up with you. I make a sexual offences prevention order.
“It is made with the intention in mind that no child gets exposed to you and anything that you may do to them.”
Greenhill was told he can never work with children.
He must sign the sex offenders’ register for 10 years.
