As she ordered convicted paedophile Michael Jackson to serve at least seven years before being eligible to apply for parole, Judge Martin Walsh described his kidnapping of a 10-year-old boy as "the stuff of every parent's nightmare".
Paedophile Michael Jackson, 50, has been jailed indefinitely for public protection for the "truly horrific" abduction and sexual assault of a ten-year-old boy in Oldbury, West Midlands.
A paedophile is to be sentenced today after he abducted, tied up and sexually assaulted a 10-year-old boy.
Michael Jackson pleaded guilty to the offence, which sparked mass public protests in Oldbury, West Midlands.
During a hearing at Wolverhampton Crown Court in May, Jackson admitted charges of kidnap, sexual assault, false imprisonment and kidnap with intent to commit a sexual offence.
The 50-year-old was arrested last November after the boy was found at his ground-floor flat in Bristnall Hall Road, Oldbury.
Local people and police launched a frantic search for the boy after he disappeared while walking in the street and it is thought he was held captive for more than three hours.
CCTV footage has been released of the moment a man walked away from a car after the vehicle flipped over in Dudley in the West Midlands. He was thrown out through the sun roof. Watch the CCTV footage on ITV Central's website.
