‘Vile predator’ locked up after multiple offences

A man who labelled by the judge as a ‘vile predator’ has been sentenced today, after being found guilty of multiple offences.

Adrian Moody, 31, of Frodingham Road, Scunthorpe, appeared at Grimsby Crown Court today (Monday 21 November) for sentencing after pleading not guilty to the offences at an earlier hearing.

Moody has today been sentenced to 13 years in prison after being found guilty of nine offences.

Moody was found guilty of five counts of sexual assault of a child, two counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child, one count of assault of a child, and one count of making indecent images of a child.

During court proceedings, Moody was branded a ‘vile predator’ by the judge, as he handed Moody a sentence of 13 years in prison, an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order and a restraining order.

The officer in the case is DC Tony Wilkinson from our Protecting Vulnerable People unit. He said: “On behalf of the team, I would firstly like to praise the courage and bravery of the victim during what has been a lengthy investigation and judicial process.

“Moody is a perverted and manipulative man who preyed on his young victim for his own sexual gratification.

“The victim’s bravery in coming forward and reporting these offences has been crucial in securing this positive outcome.”
