Hove pedophile Michael Green jailed for more sex offenses

A PERVERT ice hockey coach and physical education teacher has been convicted for a third time in yet another series of historic sex offenses against boys.

Michael James Green, 80, previously of Neville Avenue in Hove, denied 12 charges of buggery and indecent assault when he appeared at Chichester Crown Court but was convicted on July 7 after a nine-day trial.

The crimes against four boys took place between 1973 and 1993 and came to light when the victims saw advertisements about his previous crimes and contacted the police.

At the time of the abuse, all boys were between 13 and 16 years old.

Green, who was also a friend and mentor of Sarah Payne’s killer Roy Whiting, met two of the boys while working as an insurance salesman in Brighton.

One of the boys thought Green was a family friend but was abused in his own home.

Green gained access to the second boy by coaching an ice hockey team in Brighton, which he took to Devil’s Dyke where he abused him. He also verbally abused him at Green’s home address.

He forced both boys into sexual acts and raped one of them.

Green later became a sports coach at a West Sussex boarding school, where he abused, groomed and assaulted the other two boys.

He was sentenced to 17.5 years in prison today.

Detective Constable Nikki Thiim, from the Sussex Police Complex Abuse Unit, which investigated the latest allegations, said: “We have great admiration for the courage shown during the investigation and this trial by the four youngest victims.

“Her resilience to help ensure that justice is fully served and her testimony at trial was remarkable.

“Green has always denied these allegations, which has forced her to relive her experience in court, which has been extremely difficult and upsetting for her.

“It is clear that Green has been actively involved with families for many years, befriending them, encouraging them to let him involve their sons in the sport, providing him with access to young and often vulnerable boys whom he has systematically abused. ”

Green was already serving a sentence, having been sentenced to nine years in September 2018 after being convicted of 17 counts of indecent assault against seven boys between the ages of 12 and 16 between 1980 and 1994, in addition to an additional nine-year sentence that 2014 had been convicted for four counts of sex offenses against four boys.

Information on reporting sex offenses, no matter how long ago, is available on the Sussex Police website.
