A British headmaster has been sentenced to 12 years in prison after confessing guilty for numerous sexual charges against him. For example, 44-year-old Duggie Speight invited a 15-year-old student to his flat during lockdown, gave him alcohol and then seized himself to the boy. He also secretly made recordings of naked pupils in a locker room in the school.
Bradford court says the headmaster is a “very dangerous paedophile predator” that manipulated pupils. The mother of the 15-year-old boy who was abused by the man is ferocious. The seemingly helpful and generous Speight — he offered tutoring and buying gifts for the boy — was seen as a friend of the family. Until his practices came to light and “the happy family life was destroyed.” “He used our friendship and trust and twisted everything.”
The lead lecturer also secretly made recordings of young pupils who were changing, was found after research. “You were highly respected and loved by your colleagues, students and their parents, but as a public personality you hid a very dark secret, namely that you are a very dangerous, predatory, manipulative paedophile with a sexual interest in young boys,” the judge believes. The abused boy must continue his life through “with the mental scars you gave him.”
The case came up when the 15-year-old teenager had been at Speight‘s home and told a friend honestly what happened. Once confronted with his behavior, Speight initially denied, but later admitted the sexual offences. Police found a hidden tablet in the man’s house with nude images of the teen ager, without the boy knowing he was being filmed. Speight had given him alcohol before that.
