Shipley man, 26, sexually abused two boys when he was himself a child

A 26-YEAR-OLD man has been locked up for 18 months for sexually abusing two small boys in a den hidden in bushes when he was himself a child.
Gavin Falcus had shown no remorse in the 13 years since committing the offences, calling his victims liars and forcing them to give evidence in court, Judge Jonathan Rose said.
Falcus, of Laburnum Road, Shipley, was found guilty by a jury at Bradford Crown Court of a total of nine offences of indecent assault and gross indecency.
Prosecutor Caroline Wigin yesterday read statements from the victims, then aged six and seven.

One young man said he only realised the gravity of what Falcus had done as he grew older. It made him angry and paranoid and he began drinking heavily.
He suffered nightmares and flashbacks but they had lessened as the police investigation progressed.
The second victim said he lost his job while on antidepressants and had not worked much since.
Both men said the abuse had affected their personal relationships.
The first complainant told the police when he was 19. He said the abuse began as a game, in a den under a tree.
The second victim, who was approached by investigating officers, said Falcus would ask to play “the pants game.” He said it was their secret and not to tell anyone.
