Jail for teenage offences
Two men from whom ‘no teenage boy was sexually safe’ were jailed at the Central Criminal Court yesterday.
Malcolm Raywood, aged 53, was sentenced to three years and Andrew Prichodsky, aged 39, to three-and-a-half years.
Raywood, an antiques dealer, of Chelsea Gardens, Chelsea, west London, and Prichodsky, mini-cab controller, of Ash Court, Paddington, west London, pleaded guilty to conspiring to procure youths to commit acts of gross indecency between January and November last year.
The court was told that the two man went to Piccadilly Circus and other stations nightly hoping to lure homeless teenagers.
The police had launched ‘Operation Circus’ to crack down on such activities.
