Paedo football coach, scout leader jailed for sexually abusing 3 boys

A former football coach and club scout leader living in Bristol has been jailed for sexually abusing three boys.



Neil Borgeat, of Tockington Lane in Almondsbury, was jailed for three years and six months on Monday, February 5 for the offences, which took place 30 years ago when he was living in Hertfordshire.

He later moved to South Gloucestershire, worked for Rolls-Royce in Patchway and had an informal role at the Second Alveston Scout Group, although this was stopped when 13 allegations of possessing indecent images of children were made against him in 2005. Borgeat was cleared of those charges later that year, after the images were found to be of adults and the Crown Prosecution Service offered no evidence against him.

This week the 66-year-old pleaded guilty to five charges of abusing three victims between 1982 and 1990, when he was leader of 4th Boxmoor Scout Group and a youth team coach at Emerald Vale Football Club in Hemel Hempstead, the Hertfordshire Mercury reports.

The boys, now all in their 40s, were aged between seven and 16 at the time of the offences.

Wayne Cleaver, prosecuting, told St Albans Crown Court: “The defendant strove to be popular – he wanted to be everyone’s friend. He would offer treats to gain their favour.”
Mr Cleaver described how Borgeat would let boys sit on his lap in his car, so they could pretend to drive.

Borgeat's abuse

One victim spoke of an incident in which he rode with Borgeat on a tractor at the football club’s training ground, when Borgeat exposed his genitals and pressed them against his back, only to claim it had been an accident and his flies must have been undone after his last visit to the toilet.
Another victim said that, while on an outing, Borgeat told the group a story about a werewolf, leaving them too scared to sleep.
When he went to Borgeat complaining he could not sleep, the boy ended up in his bed, where Borgeat performed a sexual act on him.
“He appreciated what was happening but did not appreciate it was wrong,” Mr Cleaver said.
On a trip to Somerset in a camper van, Borgeat reached into a boy’s sleeping bag to sexually abuse him
“He didn’t understand, so pretended to be asleep. Asked by the defendant ‘did you notice anything in the night?’, he said ‘no’," said Mr Cleaver.
The next night, the same thing happened."
The court also heard how Borgeat also abused a boy in showers and when the two were alone together he showed him explicit photographs of children.
It was not until 2003 that one of Borgeat’s victims had a chance meeting with him as an adult.
He was shocked to the extent that he began to physically convulse," said Mr Cleaver.

'Wracked with shame and guilt'

He reported what had happened to the police. Hertfordshire Constabulary's Joint Child Protection & Investigation Unit then conducted extensive enquiries in order to trace witnesses or other possible victims.
The team managed to uncover two other victims during their investigation.
The victims said they were “wracked with shame and guilt”.
Mr Cleaver said of another: “To the outside, he looked unhappy. Inside, he was desperately sad, lonely and lived in fear.”

NSPCC statement on Borgeat

An NSPCC spokesperson said:
Borgeat preyed on young boys in his care who he should have been protecting, subjecting his victims to horrendous abuse that has had lasting effects.
“But it is thanks, in part, to these survivors’ courage that he is now behind bars and this case shows that it is never too late for victims to speak out and report sexual abuse with the knowledge they will be supported.
Child protection is everyone’s responsibility and anyone concerned about the welfare of a child or a safeguarding concern at sports clubs or youth groups can call the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 500.
“The NSPCC’s Trust to Lead campaign is committed to making children safer in sport today. We are calling on Government to extend ‘position of trust’ laws to better protect young people from grooming and abuse.”
“There were occasions when I couldn’t keep everything in and exploded with anger,” said another victim.
Judge 'flabbergasted' by old sentencing guidelines

Borgeat pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault on a child and two counts of inciting a child to commit an act of gross indecency.
The court heard he had recognised the damage he had done to his victims and expressed remorse, pleading guilty at the earliest opportunity.
Judge Andrew Bright also said he had received some “impressive” character references from Borgeat’s local community in Almondsbury, where he moved in 1993.
Due to the historic nature of the offences, Judge John Bright was obliged to sentence him by the legislation of the time, which left him “flabbergasted” when compared to the severity of more recent sentencing guidelines.
Borgeat received prison terms of three-and-a-half years for each of the charges of sexual assault on a child, and 18 months for each incitement offence, all running concurrently.
Judge Bright told him: “At the time, you were in a position of trust to each of those boys. You took advantage of them, knowing they had looked up to you...and you went on to abuse them for your own sexual gratification.

The boys are now men in their 40s, but each of them has been the subject of severe consequences of a psychological kind – the impact on their lives has been very traumatic and extremely serious."
Detective Constable Laura Chillingworth said: “Borgeat is a manipulative paedophile who targeted young boys for his own sexual gratification.
"It is clear that Borgeat not only groomed his victims but also parents and other adults, who believed he was safe to be with children. I have no doubt his sexual interest in young boys motivated his involvement in the scouts and youth football.
“His actions have resulted in lifelong consequences for his victims who, 30 years on, are still coming to terms with what he did. I would like to thank them for coming forward.
"Hertfordshire Constabulary is committed to tackling all allegations of sexual abuse against children. I hope they feel justice for some of the harm caused has been served after all these years.”
