Barry Bennell sentenced to fifth jail term for sexual offences against boys

The former football coach and serial paedophile Barry Bennell has been sentenced to his fifth jail term – four years imprisonment for nine sexual offences against two boys.

The 66-year-old former Crewe Alexandra coach, also known as Richard Jones, had pleaded guilty to three counts of buggery and six counts of indecent assault at an earlier hearing.

He appeared via videolink from HMP Littlehey in Cambridgeshire, where he is serving a 30-year sentence after being convicted of 52 child sexual offences in 2018.

Judge Patrick Thompson said the sentence would be served consecutively to his current prison term, meaning a total sentence of 34 years in custody, with an additional two years on licence.
