Man convicted of Jersey child abuse
Friday 21 August 2009
A former carer at a Jersey children's home was found guilty yesterday of indecently assaulting teenagers while he worked there in the 1970s.
Gordon Wateridge, nicknamed "the Perv" by his victims, carried out a string of assaults against teenage girls at the Haut de la Garenne home. The 78-year-old was found guilty of eight charges of indecent assault and one charge of assault following a trial at Jersey Royal Court.
The court heard that he would repeatedly grope girls' breasts, hug the teenagers inappropriately and kiss them on the neck.
Wateridge, born in Croydon, south London, now lives in the Jersey parish of St Clement; he was the first person to be charged in connection with a historic abuse investigation on the island.
