Former Dover prison officer jailed over sex attacks


A former Dover prison officer, who sexually abused a girl 35 years ago, has been sent to jail.

Pervert Terence Clark thought he had escaped justice for a sex attack on a schoolgirl in the 1980s.

Even at his trial at Canterbury Crown Court, the 74 year old “frail pensioner” tried to blame the victim for the incident.

But the jury saw through his lies and found him guilty of indecent assault – the maximum sentence at the time was just two years.

Judge James O’Mahony told him that a similar offence today carries up to six years inside.

He said Clark, who now lives in Boyton ,Woodbridge, Suffolk had caused his victim “physical and mental anguish”.

The judge jailed him for 18 months, telling him: “You have displayed absolutely no remorse about what you have done.

“You have shown no understanding nor insight into your offending, instead, during your trial, you set about assassinating the character of your victim – which the jury understandably rejected.”

Clarke was also ordered to sign The Sex Offender’s Register and made subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
