Chalfont Man Jailed After Sex Assaults

Niall Colm Stack

9:45am 3rd March 2012

A 55 year-old man has been sentenced to 20 months in jail at Aylesbury Crown Court, for committing sexual offences against two boys.

Niall Colm Stack, of Wheatley Way, Chalfont St Peter, pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent assault on a boy under the age of 14, and one count of assault on a boy under the age of 13 by touching, at an earlier court hearing.

He will also be on the sex offenders register for 10 years.

The two charges of indecent assault relate to one victim and occurred between 1997 and 1999, in the Chiltern area of Buckinghamshire.

The charge of assault by touching relates to a second victim and occurred between June and July 2007, in Westport, Connecticut, USA.

Thames Valley Police launched an investigation into Stack after one of the victims disclosed to his parents that he had been sexually abused. Stack was arrested in October 2011.

During police interview, Stack denied all the offences, claiming the incidents were ‘misunderstandings’.

Investigating officer Det Con Jim Armitage, of the Child Abuse Investigation Unit (CAIU) told Mix 96: "On the surface Niall Stack was a trusted family man, but he used this persona to his advantage as it enabled him to carry out these offences.

Both victims have been deeply affected by the sexual abuse carried out on them and have shown remarkable courage throughout the police investigation and subsequent court proceedings."

DC Armitage added: "Thames Valley Police will always carry out a full and thorough investigation when allegations such as this are made."
