Disgraced Norfolk doctor and police surgeon to face further sex …

Disgraced Norfolk doctor and police surgeon to face further sex charges Hugh O’Neill. PIC: Submitted by Norfolk police. Ben Kendall 1 Saturday, January 31, 2015 11:21 AM A GP and former police surgeon jailed for 12 years for terrifying sexual abuse against two teenage girls is set to face further allegations, a court has heard.

Dr Hugh Blaise O Neill, 61, of Saxlingham Lane, Tasburgh, had earlier admitted raping one of the girls and sexually assaulting both and appeared at Norwich Crown Court for sentencing yesterday. The court heard his crimes represented a fall from grace for a respected member of the community who worked as a Norfolk Police surgeon and as a GP for 37 years. Prosecutor Andrew Jackson said O Neill will face a further 15 allegations relating to separate adult victims.

The indictment has not yet been put formally to him but the charges are likely to include indecent assault and he is understood to deny the claims. Mr Jackson said the new counts relate to sexual conduct while in a position of trust . Referring to the counts he has admitted, Mr Jackson said the girls were aged under 14 at the time and do not relate to his role as a doctor.

O Neill s offending came to light after one of the now adult victims was prompted to contact police as a result of media coverage of high- profile sexual abuse cases, Mr Jackson added. One of the victims said in a statement that she could no longer trust others and she regarded the abuse as her terrible secret . She added: It was the most terrifying experience of my life.

There is not one evening that goes by when I don t relive what he did to me. The other said she felt like she had been terrorised. When I think about my childhood, I feel as though it was taken away from me, she added.

O Neill pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and one count of gross indecency against one victim, and two counts of gross indecency against a second victim. Sentencing him to 12 years in prison, Judge Anthony Bate said: These offences reflect sustained sexual abuse. The enduring impact of that violation is movingly and poignantly described in the victim s statement.

It was a breach of trust of the utmost gravity. You are now a broken man your disgrace is complete. Michael Clare, mitigating, said in every other aspect of his life, O Neill was a law-abiding, caring and outstanding man.

The higher you have risen in life, the harder the fall from grace, he said.

O Neill has been suspended from his duties by local NHS managers.
