A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a convicted child sex offender who failed to attend the last day of his trial. John Radley, 56, from Finsbury Park, London, was convicted in his absence by a jury at Swindon Crown Court. They found him guilty of 16 sex offences against children which took place in Chippenham, Calne and London. Police said they had searched his London address and further inquiries were being made to find him... PC Lizzie Porter, from the Wiltshire Police child abuse investigation team, said:... "It is not clear where else he may have travelled but he is not believed to have access to a car. "Whilst our inquiries continue, including liaison with other forces, we are appealing both directly to John himself or anyone who knows where he could be to contact the police." The court confirmed Radley was convicted on Wednesday of 10 counts of sexual activity with a boy, four counts of sexual assault on a girl, attempted rape and committing gross indecency with a child.
