Prolific paedophile gets 18 years

A man who used his daughters as bait to lure their schoolfriends into his house where they were drugged and indecently assaulted has been jailed for 18 years.

Former school governor Glyn Martin, 53, of Bridlington, East Yorkshire, simulated the murders of nine girls as they lay "stupefied" by sedatives.   Nearly 6,000 indecent photos were found at his house, Hull Crown Court heard.   The Recorder of Hull, Judge Michael Mettyear, said he would remain a danger to children for some considerable time.

Martin had earlier pleaded guilty to 57 counts of indecent assault, child abduction, indecency with a child, administering noxious substances and taking indecent photos.   The pictures were taken between the mid-1980s and 2003. He used his job as a face-painter in Bridlington to take the pictures and became a school governor in Doncaster where he took others.   He also placed adverts in newspapers appealing for young girls to befriend his two foster daughters.

The court heard Martin gave the young girls tablets, which he claimed were vitamins, shortly before they went to bed.   As they slept in a "stupefied" state he took photographs of them with placards, detailing descriptions of how he wanted to kill them, placed on their bodies.
