Prolific Hove pedophile ‘could have abused hundreds’

A pedophile jailed for a third time over a campaign of horrific sexual assaults on boys could have abused “hundreds” of children.

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

A court heard how Green, who was a friend and mentor of child killer Roy Whiting, abused the boys’ trust in his position as athletic coach to attack children.

The predator denied all allegations, forcing its victims to relive the terror they suffered at its hands.

He was sentenced to nine years in prison in 2014 and sentenced to an additional nine years in 2018 for sexually assaulting children.

More men came forward after a newspaper came forward after newspapers published a picture of Green with Roy Whiting.

He will almost certainly die in prison and could face more charges as police believe many more victims have never come forward.

A source close to the investigation said: “There may be hundreds of victims.

“We know Green was productive, motivated and determined. Green ran clubs every night of the week and on weekends when he wasn’t training at school.

“Green worked at a prestigious public school where there were a lot of vulnerable boys that he could take advantage of.”

The source said those who were abused, now in their 40s and 50s, are “heartbroken” by the attacks and are finding it difficult to speak up

They said: “We know there may be hundreds more men out there.

“This man has convictions of at least 25 years, just from the evidence proven in court we know there are many, many more.

“More men came forward after the first try and even more came forward after the second try.

“We hope that more men who have been reluctant to speak to the police in the past can now come forward.”

Abuse has ‘affected all areas of my life’

In emotional victim testimonies, four men described how Green’s abuse had a lasting impact on their lives.

One of the survivors said: “For the past 40 years, the stain of what he did to me has affected every area of ​​my life.

“Having to go through cross-examination was cruel.

“I don’t know who I would have been if I hadn’t been abused by Mick Green.”

Green taught at Windlesham House School in Pulborough for 20 years, coached boys for basketball, cricket and ice hockey at clubs he founded in Brighton and Sussex and also used his position as a door-to-door insurance salesman to care for boys.

Judge Anne Arnold told Green: “It was your kind demeanor that allowed you to sneak into homes and the school.

“Your continued and vehement denial has caused victims to relive the horror of your involvement in their childhood.

“The jury saw through your web of lies and deceit.”

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

“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. ”
