Paul Valder recently prosecuted Stephen Madge, from Sevenoaks, was convicted of six counts of indecent assault at Maidstone Crown Court after targeting a teenage boy during the 1990s.
Allegations of abuse were first made to Kent Police in November 2014, when it was reported that Madge, 62, had been responsible for multiple offences during his charity work. He was said to have developed an obsession with the victim, who he came into contact with in 1993 and repeatedly abused him throughout the year.
Madge was charged with six counts of indecent assault. He pleaded not guilty and the case went to trial, where a jury unanimously found Madge guilty on all counts.
He was sentenced to six years imprisonment on 7 May 2019, with an extended licence period of a further year. Madge was also made subject of a sexual harm prevention order and added to the sex offenders register, both for indefinite terms.
