Andrew Wallace prosecutes predatory social worker

Thu, 11 Jul 2013

Brian O’Leary, 66, a former social worker has been jailed for nine years for sexually abusing a teenage boy from a care home in Worcestershire between October 1979 and June 1980.

The court heard that O’Leary would take the boy from the care home to his house and abuse him.

O’Leary denied the four counts of indecent assault but was found guilty by a jury at Worcester Crown Court. Judge Michael Cullum said that former colleagues were unaware of his “dark secret” from the past and spoke highly of him. The victim came forward after suffering life-changing effects and wanted an apology.
