A karate instructor from Egham has been sentenced to a total of nine years imprisonment after being found guilty of 10 non-recent sexual offences.
Roy Maurice Eve, 68, was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court on Friday, 22 May following a trial which concluded at the same venue on Wednesday, 20 May. The charges relate to the sexual abuse of three teenage boys over a thirty year period starting in the 1980s.
Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Alick James, said: “This sentence reflects the severity of the offences committed by this man who took advantage of young boys and I hope, to some extent, it will allow the victims to move on with their lives and feel that justice has been served.
“All of the victims must be commended for their bravery in coming forward and it was thanks to their courage that others will be protected from this man for some time. I am grateful that they placed their trust in Surrey Police which enabled us to investigate these allegations.
“Surrey Police will always take allegations of this nature seriously and will fully investigate sexual offences, whenever they occurred.”
The offences were reported to Surrey Police in November 2014.
