Souter found guilty of string of sex offences

MICHAEL SOUTER has been found guilty of a series of sex offences against seven young boys.

The 60-year-old journalist, who lived on the Costa del Sol until recently, was convincted on a total 26 charges and cleared of one.

He was also found guilty of further counts of making and posessing indecent images.

Jurors have not reached a verdict on one count of indecent assault.

During the five week trial the court heard how Souter took advantage of his status as a local celebrity to abuse society’s most vulnerable.

The former Scout leader was described by the prosecution as a “sexual deviant” who was obsessed with young boys in shorts and uniform.

Norfolk Police confirmed a live enquiry was continuing into outstanding claims against Souter.
