#AceNewsReport – Oct.30: Brian Johncock, 79 (07.02.1940) of Wallington, Sutton, appeared at Lewes Crown Court on Friday, 13 September where he was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment for four counts of historic sexual assault/indecency against a single male victim: Johncock pleaded not guilty, but was convicted by a jury at Lewes Crown Court on Thursday, 15 August 2019 of the following:
Jailed – Brian Johncock

  • One count of indecent assault on a boy under 14
  • One count of indecent assault on a boy under 14 [on at least four occasions other than count 1].
  • One count of gross indecency with a boy under 16
  • One count of gross indecency with a boy under 16 [other than count 1].

He also received a Sexual Harm Prevention Order [SHPO] and was placed on the sex offenders register indefinitely.

The court heard that in the late 1960’s to early 1970’s Johncock would meet the victim, who was known to him, at his [Johncock’s] address in Wallington: The abuse started after Johncock targeted and subsequently groomed the victim whilst teaching him at school and this lasted for a number of years…………….The victim reported the abuse to the police in March 2017. ……………An investigation was launched by the South Area Child Abuse Investigation Team. Johncock was arrested on Friday, 24 March 2017 and was charged on Tuesday, 12 March 2019.

Detective Constable Giles Weeden, who led the investigation, said: “Johncock used his job as a teacher to exploit a vulnerable child under his care. Instead of being a beacon of support, he completely abused his position and groomed a young child for his own gratification: “It took immense bravery for the victim to come forward to police after all these years and to describe and re-live traumatic childhood memories. Without his evidence, Johncock would still be free: “I would like to thank the victim for his courage in coming forward and I hope this conviction brings a measure of closure: “There is a possibility that there are other victims in the areas of Clapham and Purley. Anyone who believes that they are victim of this crime should come forward without delay. Please be assured that the information you provide will be treated in strictest confidence and you will be supported by specialist officers.”
