The High Court on Thursday sentenced a former policeman to four years in prison for repeatedly forcing his young son to perform indecent acts.

The defendant, identified only as FSL to protect his son, had earlier been convicted by a jury of two counts of indecent conduct towards a child under 16 and two counts of inciting a child under 16 to commit an act of gross indecency.

The court heard that from 2016 to December 2018, FSL had forced his son, referred to as X in court and who was aged 10 to 12 at the time, to masturbate alongside him.

The boy was also threatened with violence, the court heard.

In passing sentence, Justice Alex Lee said the defendant had indulged himself in sex and had poisoned his son by twisting his ideas about sex.

The judge said it was an aggravating factor that FSL was a police officer when he committed the crimes as he had damaged people’s trust in the force.

FSL was officially dismissed from his job on November 27, 2019, and was stripped of his pension and other retirement benefits.
