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.
