Patrick Marshall Jailed
Posted on: February 8, 2017
Patrick Marshall, a former teacher has been jailed for 17 years for sexual offences committed against ten young boys and teenagers. Marshall was a geography teacher and rowing coach at Windsor Grammar School and then at St Paul’s School in Barnes, west London.
It is believed that he befriended his victims’ families and gained their trust giving the victims alcohol and gifts before making them perform sexual acts and threatening them to ensure they remained quiet about the abuse.
The boys he abused were aged between 11 and 15 at the time of the offences. It is alleged that he abused his first known victim after rowing practice and made the 12 year old lie down on a breakfast bar in the boathouse.
Marshall is now the third St Paul’s teacher to be convicted of sexual abuse of pupils. Former teacher Michael Ellis was found guilty of two indecent assaults on boys aged under 16 and making indecent images of children. David Samson-Mallett who was also a teacher at St Paul’s, was convicted of 23 sexual offences against four boys and received a sentence of 14 years and 9 months.
Many of the victims who were abused by the former teachers were believed to have reported their abuse in 2014 following the publicity of Operation Winthorpe.
Marshall was found guilty of 24 counts of indecent assault and gross indecency with a child and was given a 17 year prison sentence.
