Life Term For Paedophile Care Home Boss
A paedophile who used his North Wales children's home business as ``a front'' has been jailed for life.
John Allen, 73, was convicted by a jury at Mold Crown Court last week of committing historical sexual offences against 18 boys and one girl, aged between seven and 15, at his residential care properties in and around Wrexham, North Wales, between 1968 and 1991.
Allen, who had no child care qualifications when he set up his company named Bryn Alyn Community, must serve a minimum of 11 years in jail before he can be considered for release.
