A violent paedophile who amassed a personal fortune from a care home business in North Wales was recently convicted of 33 sex offences against children in his care between 1968 and 1991. According to a report in the Times by 1988 his company was running 11 homes in Wales , Cheshire and Shropshire with an annual turnover of 2.7 million and was paying himself more than 200k per year. As a consequence he may receive a life term upon his sentence. Matthew Finley who acts on behalf of claimants in relation to actions against individuals, public or private authorities said ” the case highlights an appalling breach of trust which led to vulnerable persons being abused who he was supposed to protect”.At Donald Race and Newton we have a dedicated department who will guarantee that claims of this nature are handled in a sensitive and caring manner.
