‘Dangerous predator’ jailed for sexually abusing girl at Northamptonshire children’s home

A former member of staff at a Northamptonshire children’s home was described as a ‘dangerous predator’ after being jailed for sexually abusing one of the girls living there.

Kelvin Lloyd was sentenced to 16 months in prison at Northampton Crown Court on Friday (July 26) after pleading guilty to three counts of abusing a position of trust and three of sexual activity with a child.

Lloyd had responsibility for the children’s wellbeing at the care home during the night and abused the girl between 2015 and 2018 – the home has not been named to protect the victim’s identity.

For three years, Lloyd used threats and intimidation to prevent his victim from speaking out

The 46-year-old paedophile, of Dunchurch, Warwickshire, has also been placed on the sex offenders’ register for 10 years, made subject to a 10-year sexual harm prevention order and has been barred from working with children and vulnerable adults.
