February 17, 2021

A former headteacher from Kidderminster has been jailed for a number of historic sex offences in which he ‘abused his position of trust’.

David Parry, 84, was sentenced on Friday, February 5 at Worcester Crown Court to 27 months in prison for indecent assault.

The charges relate to offences between 1984 and 1985. West Mercia Police said Parry was working as a headteacher in the West Midlands at the time.

Following the sentencing, Detective Constable Chris Dee said the force was committed to bringing sexual abusers to justice regardless of when the offences took place.

“Parry abused his position of trust as a teacher in the very worst possible way,” he said.

“I would like to praise those who came forward and to all those who gave evidence against him. It is down to their bravery he was sentenced and is going to prison.

“I hope this case reassures anyone who has been a victim of sexual abuse, either non-recent or current, that West Mercia Police is committed to providing help and support to victims and bringing offenders to justice.

“We will thoroughly investigate, no matter when the abuse took place. There is help and support available, so please don’t suffer in silence.”
