Identical twins from Cambridge who sexually abused a boy more than 20 years ago have been jailed.
John and Martyn Conway, 50, both Mormons, abused the child in the 1980s, Cambridge Crown Court was told.
John received six years and Martyn three. John was convicted of indecent assault at a trial earlier this year while Martyn admitted abuse charges.
John Conway had entered not guilty pleas, arguing he was a victim of mistaken identity.
Jurors heard that the victim, now in his 30s, had complained of being abused over a seven-year period.
In 2008 Martyn was given a seven-year jail term after being convicted of raping and molesting another boy in the 1980s.
He was found guilty of sex assaults following a trial in Cambridge and had denied any offence...

What on Earth is “1980’s sex”? Is that when you dress like Billy Idol?
No, its when you dress like Atom Ant
My Q exactly. Definitely a distinct worldview in the UK about pedophilia.

Terribly phrased headline. They were jailed for a 1980’s RAPE ... if it had been ‘sex’, it wouldn’t have been a crime.

Big hair & eyeliner required
What does their religion have to do with this? More religious bigotry from the BBC.
Don’t drink, don’t smoke.. what DO you do?
Still, there's a gratuitous "Bring'em Young" joke in there somewhere...
“Article points out the pair are Mormons. Seems to me that being homosexual would be a more important fact.”
Since all Englishmen are gay, I think the article correctly points out the news that these twins were Mormons. Kind of distinguishes them from the rest of the pack. Just kidding. That was rude. Sorry, but I know you are laughing.
Not to this loser. All she does all day is surf the internet looking for material to use for her anti-mormon obsession. Uses FR as a personal publishing house.
why did they have to throw “Mormon” in there?....they never would have mentioned Muslim....then again, if they were Catholic, we’d have three threads about here on Fr...
These perps need way more than 7/3 years jail time.
I thought that was interesting too. Doubt if we’d have seen a similar sentence if they were Muslim, Buddhist, Wiccan, etc.

The poster is a bigot dedicated to smearing Mormonism. No matter how tenuous the connection or far the stretch. This is just the latest of a long series.
