Sharon Bahia prosecution junior on Kenyan abuse trial

Tue, 03 Mar 2015

Simon Harris, 55, a former British public school teacher, has been sentenced to 17 years and four months in prison after being convicted of three indecent assaults and five sexual assaults. In addition, he was found guilty of four charges of possessing indecent images of children.

Harris, who ran an educational charity in Kenya, took boys to his home with offers of food, money and education, but subjected them to sexual abuse.

Judge Philip Parker QC said: “You designed your life to be close to boys; it suited you to be in education, it gave you kudos and it also provided a source of boys.”

A Channel 4 documentary exposed Harris, which led to a British police investigation.
