ICAEW reprimands child abuser

Institute's Professional Conduct Directorate reprimands accountant in child abuse case

A member of the ICAEW
has been severely reprimanded for sexually abusing children.

The investigation committee reprimanded the defendant after he had admitted
in court to various sexual offences.

The defendant groomed then assaulted his 12-year-old niece before moving on
to her friends. He also assaulted the 15-year-old stepdaughter of his nephew on
a trip to Thorpe Park. The defendant was also in possession of inappropriate
photographs of children, which he had acquired in Holland thirty years earlier.

The accountant, who had been found guilty by the
Crown Court
and sentenced to Community Rehabilitation Orders, was reprimanded by the
disciplinary tribunal and ordered to pay costs of £2,500 in two separate
hearings.

The accountant was not named following requests from the
Metropolitan Police to
keep his identity secret.
