Man who sexually assaulted Corby boy denied permission to appeal his conviction
A man who sexually assaulted a boy in Corby during the 1980s has been told that he cannot appeal his conviction.
Trevor Madison, who also goes by the name of Trevor Poole, was jailed in January this year after being found guilty of indecent assault by a jury at Northampton Crown Court.
The 60-year-old, of Brighton, was convicted following a three-day trial and was jailed for three years and four months.
The court heard how Madison had assaulted the boy when he was a teenager. The crime was reported to police in 2014 but it was nine years before it came to court.
This morning (Tuesday, October 24) Madison was due to appear at the Court of Appeal in London to ask a judge for leave to appeal his conviction. This newspaper tried to gain access to that hearing but our reporter was not allowed to view the hearing on video link.
Madison was denied leave to appeal and will have to see out the remainder of his sentence.
