Sexual Assault

30.08.2009

Henry Day, 70, has been found guilty of sexually assaulting boys at summer camps between 1973 and 1995. Day, who was awarded an MBE for his work with children, has been sentenced to 13 years in jail at Norwich Crown Court. 

The former youth worker was convicted of 18 charges of indecent assault, two of incitement and one of perverting the course of justice. The boys were members of the Young Citizens Guild, which Mr Day founded in the 1950s. As well as being imprisoned, Day is banned from working with children and has been registered on the sex offenders register.

Survivors of child abuse may be able to obtain further redress in the form of compensation for their suffering and for support counselling or other medical treatment to assist in their recovery from the abuser or, in certain circumstances, from the abuser’s employer.
