Paedo pensioner jailed for nine-and-a-half years
10:20am Wednesday 4th July 2012 in News
A PAEDOPHILE pensioner from South Ockendon has been jailed after he committed a string of sexual offences against four underage girls.
Terrence Stutz, 67, of Darenth Lane, was sentenced to nine-and-a-half years in prison at Southend Crown Court on Wednesday, June 27, after admitting a host of offences. His youngest victim was just 13-years-old.
The offences, which took place over the course of two-and-a-half years, between 2009 and 2011, included five counts of having sexual intercourse with underage girls, one count of causing a child to watch a sexual act and three counts of taking indecent photographs of a child. Stutz denied two counts of causing a child to engage in sexual activity and one count of assault on a female child.
He admitted taking photographs of the youngest girl for sexual gratification and performing a sex act in front of her.
The father of one of Stutz’s victims, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said: “He needs to be named and shamed.
“What he did was awful. He’ll probably only serve four years of that prison sentence, so it needs to be known who he is and what he did.”
