A CONVICTED paedophile sexually assaulted a boarding school pupil in a Brighton cinema as they watched a Madonna film, a court heard.

Micheal Green, 75, who worked as a sports coach at the Windlesham House School took groups of boys to the cinema in minibus, Lewes Crown Court heard.

A man, now aged in his 40s, told how his former coach touched him and asked him if he felt aroused by watching Madonna in A League of Their Own when he was around 11-years-old. In a police interview recorded in July 2014, the man described a similar incident when Mr Green took a group of boys to see The Bodyguard starring Whitney Houston.

The man told specialist officers from Sussex police he needed therapy in his 20s to help him deal with the alleged abuse. “Mr Green was quite friendly and touchy feely,” he said.

“He was asking me if I was aroused by what was happening in the cinema.

“We were watching Madonna in a League of Their Own.

“He took my hand and put it on his crotch.”

On another cinema trip the boys were taken to see The Bodyguard though they were not old enough, the man said.

“During the sex scenes in that film, he asked the same thing and put his hand on my crotch and put my hand on his.I remember that after that, he said we couldn’t tell anyone about seeing the film so it was a secret between us,” he told court.

“I remember feeling confused and I didn’t really understand what he was asking,” the man told police.

“I was confused and stunned and I would say scared, but it was more I felt sort of paralysed.”

The man said he felt guilty for not reporting the incidents at the time. Another man said he was compelled to come forward after seeing press reports of another child abuse case.

“He’s the scum of the earth,” the man told police after coming forward in 2015. I saw something on the news and thought, he’s going to get away with it. I wanted to get my point across.”

He told police he had been sexually assaulted after meeting Mr Green when he was 11-years-old. The jury heard how he met the accused when he was coaching a youth ice hockey team in Brighton.

“He asked me to come to his house,” the man told police.

“He gave me a drink and asked me if I wanted to go upstairs.”

The man, now in his 40s described Michael Green as having a musky smell.

“Like a dirty person sort of smell,” the man said.

“I was scared to say anything.

“I didn’t know what to think.

“I didn’t know what would happen to me, so I let him carry on do it.

“I just blocked it out of my mind for years,” the man said.

“I was disgusted with it, but I was only young so I tried to put it to the back of my mind.”

Michael Green, who was freed on licence from a nine-and-a-half year sentence, is accused of 15 new charges involving seven more boys.

He denies the charges.

The trial continues.
