Fugitive British Paedophile Arrested in Cambodia

A British paedophile that has been on the run for two years was recently arrested in Cambodia.

Sexual Abuse

Damien Midgley, a horse riding instructor from Leeds, fled Britain after he was sentenced to six years in prison for sexually abusing a number of children during his lessons.

The 39 year old was charged with 11 offences of abusing four children under the age of 13. Upon his initial arrest, Midgley denied the offences, telling police officers in the UK that he had not touched the children sexually.

After fleeing the country while on bail, Midgley reportedly travelled to Thailand and then went on to Cambodia.

2014 Trial

The horse riding instructor had already left Britain when his trial started in 2014, instead he sent his lawyers to present his defence in court. As a plea of not guilty was entered on his behalf, his young victims had to endure telling the court exactly what he had done to them.

Midgley was convicted of all 11 charges brought against him. His offences included one count of inciting a child under thirteen to commit a sexual act and ten counts of sexually assaulting a girl under the age of thirteen.

Along with sentencing Midgley to six years imprisonment, the judge ordered him to sign the sex offender register for life.

British Authorities to be Alerted

Officers in Siem Reap, the Cambodian tourist town where Medgley was apprehended, announced that the paedophile had been arrested in a local bar. According to Cambodia’s Deputy Commissioner Colonel Kim San, British authorities will now be alerted of Medgley’s arrest and the deportation process will commence.
