A former British Airways pilot has been jailed for 12 and a half years for a string of child sex offences. Bartle Frere, 51, of Shipton Gorge, was handed the prison term at Bournemouth Crown Court after being convicted of 16 sex offences.
These included eight charges of sexually assaulting a boy from West Dorset between April 2000 and January 2003; four counts of making indecent images of boys in India in 2009; arranging or facilitating the abuse of teenage boys in India between 2009 and 2013; and one charge of attempting to record a person doing a private act in 2012.
Frere was previously found guilty of six charges of possessing indecent images of children and two charges of arranging or facilitating the abuse of boys in India, following a trial in September 2014.
The court heard that Frere was employed as a pilot by British Airways and regularly travelled to India and in particular the city of Chennai.
Concerns were raised that he was arranging for young boys to visit his hotel room.
On 9 November 2013 a search warrant was executed at Frere’s home and a number of computers and DVDs were seized.
The court heard that officers examined a huge volume of computer data and identified that Frere had been communicating via email with several boys in India. In the emails Frere arranged to meet the boys to engage in sexual acts.
