Man avoids jail over sex offences against 12-year-old boy

A former Doncaster man has been given a suspended jail sentence after pleading guilty to historic sex offences against a young boy.

Adam Burley, 44, who now lives in the Isle of Man, was given a two-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty to buggery, gross indecency and indecent assault at Bradford Crown Court.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police said the offences had taken place in Doncaster between 1986 and 1989 against a 12-year-old boy.
