Bradford man to receive lengthy prison sentence after raping young boy

A Bradford man is set to receive a lengthy prison sentence after being found guilty of raping and sexually assaulting a boy.

27-year-old Adam Wager, of Colyton Mount, Allerton, was remanded in custody yesterday and is due to be sentenced at Bradford Crown Court on April 2.

He pleaded guilty to a total of nine charges, including two counts of oral rape, sexual assault, causing a child to engage in sexual activity, sexual activity with a child and three offences of making indecent photos of children, some of which were Category A - the most egregious of their type.

Following Wager’s guilty pleas, Judge Jonathan Rose withdrew his bail, telling him: “You are facing a very long sentence of imprisonment,” before going on to explain that he feared Wager might not come back to court to be sentenced if he was granted bail.

Judge Rose later ordered a report from the probation service to address the question of the level of danger Wager poses to young children.

Following the court appearance, Wager was ordered to sign on the sex offender register after he was remanded in custody.
