INSTRUCTOR 'A MANIPULATIVE PAEDOPHILE'.

Byline: Examiner Court Correspondent editorial@examiner.co.uk

A PAEDOPHILE killed himself jumping off a bridge hours before he was due to be sentenced yesterday with a Huddersfield man for abusing a teenager in Yorkshire.

Leeds Crown Court heard accountant Michael Fiek was identified through his fingerprints by a Metropolitan officer after committing suicide in North London.

Bearded Fiek, 40, was facing sentence on 14 charges including having sex with a 15-year-old boy in Thornes Park, Wakefield, on the same occasion as another paedophile, Huddersfield driving instructor, Andrew Charles Lynes.

Fiek had travelled to Huddersfield by train in May 2014 to meet up with Lynes before they collected the teenager, who was paid PS80 for his sexual services. Their abuse of him was filmed on phones by the two adults.

The court heard Lynes also exchanged messages and images with other like-minded perverts in Plymouth and Wales about abusing other children, including babies, describing himself as obsessed with such youngsters.

One of those he was in contact with was convicted sex offender James Bould (inset below) who was on licence for previous offences when he blackmailed a 13-year-old boy into having sex with him at his home in Dewsbury.

Anthony Dunne, prosecuting, told the court after Bould sent him a copy of a naked picture of that boy Lynes also wanted to have sex with the schoolboy and they even discussed when that could happen.

Bould, 35, of Swindon Road, Eightlands, Dewsbury admitted eight offences including three charges of sexual activity with a child, two of causing a child to engage in sexual activity, two of distributing indecent photographs and one of conspiring to engage in sexual activity.

He was jailed for eight years eight months with five years four months extended licence after Judge Tom Bayliss QC described him as dangerous with a long standing sexual attraction to young boys that was likely to persist.

"You are a habitual paedophile, a man who preys on young boys," he told Bould.

Lynes, 51 of Deighton Road, Deighton, admitted 11 charges including conspiring to engage in sexual activity, three charges of making indecent photographs, two of distributing photographs, two of sexual activity with a child, one of causing a child to engage in sexual activity, one of paying for sexual services and one of taking indecent photographs.

He was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison with five years extended licence.

Judge Bayliss said Lynes had shared a fantasy about abusing a one-year-old boy and admitted being obsessed with young children.

He added: "It is clear from an evidential basis that you are a manipulative paedophile and I conclude there is a further risk of offending in your case."

He commended the police for their meticulous investigation.

Mr Dunne told the court the 13-year-old victim began chatting with users on an instant messaging service in 2014, giving his age as 14.

Some of those with whom he was in touch asked if he wanted "to get dirty." He went along with it and sent an intimate picture to several users including Bould and then also sent a picture of himself naked.

Bould then asked to meet him which he declined but Bould then told him he would "send the pictures round".

Fearing that meant to his schoolfriends among others, the boy from the Hudders-field area did agree. He travelled by train to Dewsbury and was directed by phone to Bould's home. He was then directed upstairs to the bedroom.

He was ordered to strip to his boxer shorts and get into bed with Bould who then began touching him but did not have sex on that occasion.

Afterwards the boy said he felt dirty and ashamed. He did not want to return but felt coerced into going back because of the threat to disclose his photo. One the next occasion Bould had sex with him without using a condom.

Mr Dunne said the photos supplied by the boy were forwarded by Bould to Lynes among others and the driving instructor indicated he too would like to have sex with the schoolboy. They discussed when and where but got no further than that.

Lynes was first arrested at his home in July 2014 as part of a separate investigation into the distribution of indecent images and in November that year a 15-year-old boy con-fided in a youth worker he had been paid for sex with adults earlier in the year.

It turned out that it was Fiek and Lynes who had taken him to Thornes Park where they videoed their sexual abuse of him on phones. Fiek had also gone on a later occasion on his own.

They exchanged images of their abuse and Lynes was also in contact with two other paedophiles. One in Cardiff sent him a picture of a friend's one-year-old son and said he hoped to abuse him if he could babysit him and they both fantasised about that.

Gillian Batts, representing Bould, said because of "disassociative amnesia" he did not remember what he had done but conceded his dangerousness and was willing to comply with any treatment suggested for him.

James Littlehales for Lynes said his arrest had been a "wake up call" he had immediately sought help for his behaviour and was attending Sexaholics Anonymous weekly since then. He had never actually met the 13-year-old boy.

After the case Det Insp Lis Walker said: "The strong sentences given to these men are clear indication of the danger they posed and we hope their victims will feel reassured that their abusers will be spending such a long time behind bars.

"These men dealt and traded in abusive images including many of the worst possible category. Bould and Lynes abused teenage boys for their own sexual gratification knowing full well they were underage."
